Tampa, FL — September 22, 2020DataLink Software (DataLink), a leading solution to enhance interoperability, reduce costs, improve quality scores and ensure risk adjustment accuracy, announces the release of its white paper, “New Perspectives in Value-Based Care: Improving Quality Measurement and Reporting in the Age of Pandemics.” The paper explores the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic upon the healthcare system, quality reporting and HEDIS® measurement reporting.  Authors point to the benefits of Evoke360, a point-of-care solution that effectively enables providers to identify open care gaps for proactive closure and provides payer-agnostic data to inform clinical, quality and risk adjustment programs for improvements in quality and risk adjustment scores and patient outcomes.

“As a large number of hospitals and private physician practices continue to struggle financially in today’s environment, many of them are seeking technology and solutions that will help them make the shift to a value-based model,” says Phillip Giarth, director of provider engagement, DataLink. “The current approach to quality and safety measurement remains too labor-intensive, often causing substantial data delays and lacking sufficient standardization to allow for rapid data sharing. Evoke360 overcomes these challenges, capturing quality benchmarks and risk-adjustment rules, as well as data in near real-time to enable providers to effectively measure the quality of care they are providing.”

Evoke360 is designed for payers, providers, accountable care organizations (ACOs), provider groups and managed service organizations (MSOs) that manage quality, risk adjustment and care for patient populations. Evoke360 improves operational performance, care delivery and patient outcomes.

Giarth adds, “During this critical time in the nation’s history, Evoke360 can facilitate the much-needed transition to value-based care by meeting the need for a comprehensive interoperable population health management solution that aligns the payer, provider and patient to proactively close care gaps and ensure full visibility of the patient’s complete health status to facilitate effective care coordination.”
