Analytics platform receives certification
McKesson Health Solutions announced that HealthQX is the first healthcare analytics platform to achieve Claims and Provider Analysis Certification for 97 episode-of-care definitions in the PROMETHEUS Analytics® model. The testing was performed and certification provided by Altarum Institute's Center for Payment Innovation.
HealthQx integrates the latest PROMETHEUS Analytics (version 5.4) episode of care definitions. All are ICD-10 compliant, including six new episodes for behavioral health and oncology, the company said.
“Bundled payment is the industry's fastest growing payment model, projected to account for 17% of medical spend by 20201. Payers and providers want episode definitions they can trust and that focus on care quality, so they can accelerate negotiations as well as operationalize and automate these complex models,” said Mark McAdoo, vice president of Value-Based Payments at McKesson Health Solutions.
McKesson's HealthQx allows providers to simplify and automate the design, deployment, and monitoring of complex mixed and alternative payment models such as bundled payments, Accountable Care Organizations, and other at-risk arrangements, the company said. It is part of the McKesson Network and Financial Management portfolio.
