Koan Health enables clients to achieve population health success with MSSP, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid, and Commercial ACO programs

DALLAS - June 28, 2023—Koan Health, a population health analytics company, has earned the Certified Data Partner designation from NCQA's new Data Aggregator Validation (DAV) program. Koan Health is one of seven organizations to achieve the Data Aggregation Validation (DAV) certification to date. This is the highest level of certification available from NCQA, and it illustrates a company's commitment to delivering high-value clinical data that health plans and providers can trust for use with HEDIS® reporting and other quality programs.

NCQA's Data Aggregator Validation program evaluates clinical data streams to help ensure that health plans, providers, government organizations, and others can trust the accuracy of aggregated clinical data for use in Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) reporting and other quality programs.

Handke, PharmD, MBA, CEO of Nebraska Health Network. “Koan Health is a strong partner in our value-based care journey.  Earning the DAV designation is a great example of Koan Health prioritizing solutions to help us meet the advanced needs of payers.”

"Koan Health has consistently focused on delivering the most accurate, transparent, and trust-worthy data for our clients," said DT Nguyen, founder, and CEO, of Koan Health.  "Earning the Data Aggregator Validation certification underscores our commitment to ensuring our client's data and the resulting insights are the most accurate possible.  Our focus on clinical data accuracy helps reduce manual work, improve MSSP benchmark and quality measure accuracy, and even challenge a payer's quality reporting results.  Our fidelity to clinical data accuracy enables our clients to easily uncover opportunities to deliver better outcomes, higher quality care, and lower costs."
