One of the first vendors to achieve certification for 2017, MedeAnalytics Quality Management empowers health plan customers with the ability to rapidly improve HEDIS® performance, ultimately improving quality care for their members.

"What's most exciting is that once you have enabled your customers to get validated results in minutes, you open the door for direct provider participation in quality improvement and supplemental data capture, something many of our customers are doing today. It really changes the payer-provider dynamic and delivers enhanced health value for consumers."
