Sponsored by Businesswire

In partnership with RISE Association, DataLink Software (DataLink), a leading solution to enhance interoperability, reduce costs, improve quality scores and ensure risk adjustment accuracy, announces the presentation of its webinar, “Best Practices for Managing HEDIS Supplemental Data,” October 28 at 1:30 p.m. ET. Presented by Josh Hetler, executive vice president, Sales & Marketing, DataLink, the webinar discusses how to accurately capture HEDIS supplemental data by reducing the manual aspects of data aggregation in order to meet quality reporting requirements. Register to attend here.

“This is an essential webinar for health plans and healthcare professionals that want to gain a better understanding of how supplemental data can enhance quality gap closure and improve HEDIS reporting,” says Hetler. “Attendees will further appreciate the importance of capturing data from electronic health records (EHRs), health information exchanges (HIEs) and non-standard supplemental data and recognize that the inclusion of supplemental data saves time, money and resources. This approach mitigates the need for chasing individual charts, simplifies data attainment and improves the data available for HEDIS reporting and patient analytics.”

DataLink’s Evoke360 population health solution enables providers to rapidly access, extract and electronically export patient data from a meaningful use-certified EHR to a continuity of care (CCD) document. This innovative solution enhances provider workflows and clinical decision-making, virtually eliminating human transmission errors from faxing and uploading documentation for supplemental data and closing quality care gaps in near real-time.

“For payers, greater accuracy and a dramatic reduction in data extraction time rapidly closes gaps in care, improving patient outcomes, positively impacting HEDIS scores and CMS STAR ratings, adds Hetler. “While electronic claims data transmission from provider’s offices to payers supports a consolidated view of the individual patient, supplemental data provides additional clinical information about a patient for a more comprehensive picture of the care and services delivered.”
