What is the DAV Program?
The NCQA Data Aggregator Validation (DAV) 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.
Once a data aggregator demonstrates that its processes maintain data integrity from the original source (or sources) to a health plan, the validated data can be used as HEDIS® standard supplemental data, thereby eliminating the need for primary source verification.
The Incredible Opportunity for Data Aggregators
The Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) is a set of measures designed to gauge the quality of health care services. HEDIS is arguably one of the more important activities that health plans engage in because measure rates dictate financial rates. Health plans have a need for supplemental data but too often it comes with the burden of validating the data through a process called primary source verification – a time and resource intensive process. But, by providing DAV-validated data you can support your health plans’ HEDIS reporting goals without the burden of primary source verification as its considered standard supplemental data.
