Federal government approves NCQA as an ONC-Authorized Testing Lab

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
WASHINGTON, DC—The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is proud to announce NCQA’s eMeasure testing laboratory is now approved by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). As an ONC-Authorized Testing Lab (ONC-ATL), NCQA can perform health IT tests as part of the ONC Health IT Certification program.

NCQA is the only approved alternative to this government-based electronic quality measure testing procedure. With this approval, health IT and data vendors can use the NCQA generated test decks for two certifications; ONC HIT Certification for use in reporting electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) to CMS for the Quality Payment Program; as well as NCQA eMeasure certification for use in NCQA’s recognition for Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and as a standard supplemental dataset in support of HEDIS reporting.

“As the country moves from fee for service to fee for value, there is an increasing reliance on performance measurement. NCQA is pleased to provide the industry a rigorous validation of the systems being used to produce these rates,” says Rick Moore, Chief Information Officer, NCQA. “We believe our 20-year history of producing HEDIS, the most widely used nationally comparable performance measurement set, offers vendors an assuredness that when they pass our testing, their system is ready to accurately select the correct records for reporting.”

NCQA’s eMeasure testing laboratory uses the only approved alternative eCQM testing method for health IT currently approved by ONC for use in the Program. As an ONC-ATL, NCQA’s eMeasure testing lab process is equivalent to the ONC-approved Project Cypress tool, which means NCQA’s program is an option for data vendors seeking to certify quality measures as part of the ONC HIT certification program. Additionally, the NCQA methodology is the most rigorous testing available, producing hundreds more test cases per measure to validate all measure logic paths and parameters.

The ONC ATL approval follows the accreditation of NCQA‘s eMeasure Certification program by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). NVLAP is a third-party accreditor that tests health information technology systems. NVLAP accreditation is required before an entity can become an ATL.
