To better assist member hospitals in successfully meeting their
reporting requirements of chart-abstracted core measures, Vizient,
Inc
. announces an agreement with Medisolv,
Inc.
for its ENCOR Quality Management Platform. This new
agreement builds on Vizient’s existing, successful relationship with
Medisolv for their electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs)
management solution.

Submission of chart-abstracted core measures to the Centers for Medicare
and Medicaid Services (CMS) and The Joint Commission (TJC) is mandatory
and a complex process for hospitals. Providers who do not successfully
meet reporting requirements put Medicare reimbursement or accreditation
status at risk. The ENCOR Abstracted Measures application and the
accompanying dashboards offered by Medisolv will help alleviate Vizient
members’ burden by improving the efficiency of core measures reporting
while also offering insights for performance improvement.

“The complexity of core measures reporting requires a solid abstraction
tool, performance monitoring capabilities as well as support services,”
said Bharat
Sundaram
, president, performance improvement services at Vizient.
“We are excited about the agreement with Medisolv because we believe it
provides an easy-to-use abstraction platform and gives our members tools
to track efficiency and compliance with the core measures program
throughout the year.”

The ENCOR Quality Management Platform is an integrated suite of
applications designed to measure and improve performance on more than
500 national quality and safety measures using EHR and other health
system data. The agreement with Medisolv offers Vizient members:

  • Easier case abstraction with pre-populated demographic select
    clinical data and advanced skip logic
  • Dynamic measure status toolbar to help visually identify
    measure status prior to the completion of a worksheet
  • Context-sensitive help feature on worksheets
  • Robust set of internal reports that ensure data quality,
    measure provider efficiency and monitor performance by physician,
    measure set or strata
  • Simplified data submission with Medisolv submitting files
    directly to both CMS and TJC
  • Interactive dashboard with drill down capability to support
    the hospital in monitoring the quality measure performance of all
    their hospitals and practices including historical trending from one
    central location

The Medisolv abstraction software and related services included in the
Vizient Clinical Data Base (CDB) subscription, will enable hospitals to
create a more comprehensive quality program that will assist in meeting
their regulatory and accreditation program requirements. Additionally,
Vizient members are assigned a dedicated Medisolv clinical advisor to
provide product training, support, data validation assistance and
guidance on regulatory compliance issues.

“This agreement will offer Vizient members our advanced tools to easily
manage and comply with the mandates of core measures reporting
programs,” said Dr. Zahid Butt, chief executive officer for Medisolv.
“Preparing hospitals and physicians for success in the ever-changing
world of value-based payments is a key goal of our collaboration with
Vizient. With Medisolv’s Best
in KLAS quality management software
, health systems are able to
achieve superior levels of performance while also reducing revenue and
accreditation risks.”
