"With the successful certification for professional encounter data, and the Front End Certification achieved in December 2011, Inovalon is now able to fully support clients during the transition from the current risk adjustment processing system (RAPS) to the encounter data processing system (EDPS)," said Daniel L. Rizzo, CFA, Inovalon's Chief Innovation Officer. "Achieving the large-scale data integration, processing, reporting, and submission certification in parallel succession with CMS' evolving technical specifications, ahead of the CMS mandated deadline, is a testimony to Inovalon's strong commitment to clients and capability to quickly react and bring to market healthcare analytics solutions, which not only meet the most stringent regulatory and compliance policies of the government, but also provide our clients with in-depth insights into their risk adjustment process."
