CitiusTech launches CQ-IQ – first clinical quality rules engine in the cloud
CitiusTech, a provider of healthcare technology solutions, announced the launch of its cloud-hosted clinical quality analytics platform – CQ-IQ. CQM (Clinical Quality Measure) reporting is becoming a core requirement for healthcare organizations today to enhance healthcare delivery and to meet new regulatory reporting requirements. CQ-IQ, the first-of-its-kind platform will enable healthcare organizations to leverage its advanced CQM computation capabilities (as a web service) in a HIPAA compliant cloud environment.
CQ-IQ is a comprehensive analytics offering that leverages the power of BI-Clinical, CitiusTech’s healthcare Business Intelligence (BI) and reporting platform which is used across 4,000 provider locations. CQ-IQ offers a simple web services based approach for clinical quality computations for any healthcare applications and data sources. CQ-IQ also provides robust data validation tools for data structure, data quality, and terminology compliance. CQ-IQ enables providers and healthcare IT vendors to reduce the overall cost of developing, maintaining and certifying a large set of clinical quality measures – significantly increasing flexibility and reducing operational cost of managing large portfolio of CQMs.
CQ-IQ currently consists of more than 250 pre-built clinical quality measures, across various care settings such as physician practices, hospitals, accountable care organizations (ACO) and health plans. Customers can use CQ-IQ to participate in federal incentive programs (e.g. Meaningful Use, Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)), commercial payer initiatives (e.g. Health Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS), Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH), Pay-for-Performance), and provider quality programs (e.g. Value-Based Purchasing, Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting Program (HIQRP)). CQ-IQ is backed by CitiusTech’s commitment to keep CQM definitions current with changing regulatory and industry requirements.
“Adhering to the new and changing business and regulatory requirements need huge investments in clinical data analytics,” says Rizwan Koita, chief executive officer at CitiusTech. “CQ-IQ’s unique cloud-based model offers a flexible and scalable CQM computation for healthcare organizations and healthcare IT vendors.”
