Why ONC-Health IT Certification is Important to Current and Future Roji Health Intelligence Clients

ONC-Health IT Certification provides Roji Health Intelligence with additional capabilities for streamlining performance measurement and improvement. This is especially important for the Roji Health Intelligence Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), which has unique advantages for multi-specialty groups trying to manage under MACRA and move toward a financial risk model.

Special benefits of ONC-Health IT Certification for Roji Health Intelligence QCDR Clients include:

  • Expanded Measures for Roji Health Intelligence Reporting. Roji Health Intelligence will be able to report EHR measures in addition to Registry measures for MIPS. This will ease the reporting burden for clients while still retaining the maximum data needed for performance improvement. Integrating both medical record measures as well as other performance measures will help providers better centralize and manage their programs of measurement and improvement.
  • Roji Health Intelligence QCDR Reporting of both sets of Advancing Care Information MeasuresAdvancing Care Information Objectives and Measures plus 2017 Advancing Care Information Transition Objectives and Measures. Creating full-spectrum measurement and reporting for quality enables Roji Health Intelligence to become the full command center for data used in meeting quality standards and improving outcomes across all patients.
  • More robust QCDR performance improvement activities are facilitated by ONC-Health IT Certification because of availability of additional measures, such as closing the referral loop between specialists and referring clinicians. The QCDR will be able to help address network-wide referrals and offer other activities beyond the scope of EHR services, but using EHR data.
  • Additional options for EHR data collection available to Roji Health Intelligence clients. In addition to other data format options, Roji Health Intelligence will also provide the option to clients of submitting QRDA Is, which can be provided by any certified EHR.
