Lincoln, NE, — KPI Ninja Inc., announces that Ninja Universe, their core analytics platform, has achieved National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) 2017 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Prevalidation.
“By providing software that helps physician practices build the patient-focused, coordinated care infrastructure expected of NCQA patient-centered medical homes, KPI Ninja is helping practices be part of modern health care’s most important transformations,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Medical homes are the way of the future, and KPI Ninja is helping practices get there.”
Primary care practices that obtain NCQA PCMH recognition have demonstrated the bold transformation of orienting their practice to patients’ wants and needs. Once achieved, these practices become eligible for additional incentives from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and other participating payers. While KPI Ninja’s from their solution and services, they will now have the benefit of reduced documentation required to qualify for PCMH recognition.
