Qualified Entity Certification Program
The QECP is a CMS program for approved organizations (qualified entities [QEs]) that allows them to use Medicare claims data (Parts A, B, and D) to help evaluate provider performance. CyncHealth is a quasi-QE which enables the use of our existing clinical data for evaluation until claims data is ingested. Upon meeting the QE standard for claims ingestion CyncHealth will move to full QE and have access to Medicare claims.
CyncHealth’s ability to ingest and manage claims data demonstrates compliance with data security and privacy requirements of the CMS program. Claims data allows analytical insights into healthcare spend to align with current information on quality and access to care.
Facilities/providers and payers
QCDR and QR
Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) and Qualified Registry designations come from CMS. CyncHealth has achieved and maintains these certifications to CMS standards to support our providers and health systems that participate in Medicare Quality Payment Programs. These designations allow CyncHealth to report to CMS on behalf of a requesting provider or entity. Examples of these programs are MIPS, ACO measures, and Primary Care First.
