OVERLAND PARK, KS (June 30, 2022) – Quest Analytics, the leader in provider network management solutions and services, today introduced three new features for Quest Enterprise Services (QES) designed to improve their client’s ability to address the No Surprises Act (NSA), QHP Certification and the evolving provider network regulations. The new offerings include:
- Accuracy API & Daily Refresh: With the No Surprises Act mandate that employer-sponsored, Marketplace and individual plans need to update their provider directories within two business days of receiving a provider notification that information has changed, the new Daily Refresh & API add-on option for QES Accuracy ensures that clients receive timely updates for their network providers daily, instead of weekly.
- Volume Targeting: Building on the workflow efficiencies created by QES Volume Terminations, Quest Analytics introduces QES Volume Targeting, allowing clients to quickly and efficiently evaluate the impact of adding a health system or large provider group on network adequacy requirements across lines of business.
- CCIIO QHP Template: The CCIIO Qualified Health Plan (QHP) Template in QES is a pre-built template based on the latest CCIIO Federally-facilitated exchanges (FFEs) QHP Network Adequacy requirements. The template enables health plans to monitor provider network adequacy for QHP Certification compliance easily, identify deficiencies in provider networks and streamline provider recruitment.
“At Quest Analytics, we have a legacy of innovation and are proud of the work we do to ensure that our clients meet the complex and rapidly evolving state and federal regulations,” said Linda Borths, Chief Client Officer, Quest Analytics. “These new enhancements address the need to continuously monitor the accuracy of provider data and the impact on provider network adequacy. As well as, offer more efficient ways to measure and model provider networks while ensuring compliance.”
