DataLink has revalidated its data stream status from NCQA’s Data Aggregator Validation program

Tampa, Fla. (June 18, 2024) — DataLink, a leading provider of data-driven solutions for high-quality, value-based care, today announced that they’ve revalidated their data stream through the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Data Aggregator Validation program. 

“With this revalidation, DataLink solidifies its ongoing commitment to data governance, authenticity of data outputs, and our excellent onboarding and data ingestion processes for clients,” said Ashish Kachru, CEO, DataLink. “We’re proud to continually show our clients that we’re invested in producing quality clinical data to help them meet their needs.” 

This revalidation means that DataLink continues to meet the rigorous and necessary requirements of supporting data stream validation through the Data Aggregator Validation program. With this revalidation, health plans, providers, government organizations, and others can trust that DataLink is able to meet the data requirements to support HEDIS® and other quality programs and reporting.

The Data Aggregator Validation program takes up to 20 weeks to review two sets of standards: process, system, and data standards and output data integrity standards. 

The process, system, and data standards review the processes, policies, and procedures for ingesting, managing, and aggregating data. The output data integrity standards assess the company’s adherence to NCQA’s Continuity of Care Document Implementation Guide and primary source verification by testing and reviewing CCD output files.

DataLink added over 2,000 new ingestion sites, bringing DataLink close to 8,000 ingestion sites under our Data Aggregator Validation program validated data stream. 

DataLink’s revalidation went into effect on June 1, 2024, and will be good until May 31, 2025.
