Community Health Solutions Of America Implements Cognizant's Comprehensive HEDIS Measurement And Reporting Solution

TEANECK, N.J., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Cognizant (NASDAQ: CTSH) today announced the successful deployment of a comprehensive compliance measurement and reporting solution for Community Health Solutions of America, Inc.

ClaimSphere HEDIS, Cognizant's NCQA (National Committee for Quality Assurance)-certified solution, enables healthcare companies to plan, monitor, and improve performance of HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) measures. The solution will support CHS' launch of targeted campaigns to improve patient health.

ClaimSphere HEDIS is designed to scale to the requirements of the emerging value-based healthcare model, which focuses on improving outcomes to contain cost.

By proactively identifying patient gaps in quality care and working with providers and patients to ensure quality care is obtained, CHS can positively impact the health of their members.

"This engagement marks an important milestone in our mission to deliver patient-centric and physician-driven managed care," said Berta O'Leary, Vice President of Quality Management at CHS. "Apart from Cognizant's robust domain and technical knowledge, we were impressed with the user-friendly features and functionality of ClaimSphere HEDIS, and its strong ability to uncover gaps in the state-provided claims, membership, and provider data. The solution will help us drive positive changes in healthcare quality, access, and convenience, and increase provider and member satisfaction, while optimizing costs and productivity."
