HealthcareData Company engages VisiQuate® to develop HEDIS® benchmarking solutions

Mechanicsburg, PA Dec 15 – HealthcareData Company (HDC), one of America’s best known HEDIS®audit companies, announced today that it has partnered with VisiQuate®, a Big Data Analytics company, to improve a benchmarking solution that will contribute to the precision, clarity, and efficiency of performance measurement for its clients.

HEDIS is used by more than 90 percent of America's health plans to measure performance on important dimensions of care and service. Knowing these scores helps them maximize their strengths and focus their improvement efforts.

According to Ted Ackroyd, Ph.D., CEO and Founder of HDC, “Benchmarking is an important part of the audit process. The performance scores reported for each product offered by a health plan must be benchmarked. This is a complex and time-consuming process, but it must be completed in a short period of time. Large audit firms like HDC need innovative technologies that enhance the efficiency of the benchmarking process because their many clients offer a huge selection of products. So, we expect VisiQuate’s automated solution will significantly contribute to our complex benchmarking work.”

“We’re excited and proud to work with HDC on this,” said JK Kolmansberger, VisiQuate’s President and Co-Founder. “HDC is one of our oldest clients, and are always inspiring us to develop solutions in new areas of healthcare. This will bring significant productivity improvements to HDC, so we will develop this solution quickly, and have it deployed within 90 days from our start date.”
