March 2, 2020
Lincoln, NE – KPI Ninja Inc., announces that Ninja Universe, their innovative analytics platform, is one of the first two vendors in the country to achieve National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) 2019 Patient-Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP) Prevalidation. This recognition demonstrates that their software is directly aligned to the newly released program, helping to create the care delivery infrastructure needed for higher quality, more cost-effective health care.
“Whether you are an independent provider or a large health plan, measuring and improving quality impacts all of us in health care” said Rick Moore, Chief Information Officer at NCQA. “KPI Ninja is the only vendor to hold NCQA’s eCQM Certification as well as PCMH and PCSP Prevalidation status. This level of recognition communicates their deep commitment and robust capability to support value-based care and leave a footprint in the health care landscape.”
NCQA’s PCSP recognition supports the growing need for comprehensive change by being the foundation of a well-coordinated system. PCSP builds on best practices from the Patient-Centered Medical Home model and enables practices to systematically provide patient-centered care in the medical neighborhood. Program standards include elements related to effective coordination, communication, timely and appropriate referrals and consultations, and quality improvement.
“As an analytics company that is built on performance excellence principles, we understand the need to improve our system holistically” said Vineeth Yeddula, CEO at KPI Ninja. “Because of this, our platform is set up to support health care stakeholders throughout the ecosystem transition to value-based care and improve financial and quality outcomes.”
As KPI Ninja’s technology has the functionality to meet one or more program standards, customers have the benefit of using technology that directly supports the Triple Aim and will experience less administrative burden associated with meeting requirements.
