SCOTTSDALE (Sept. 1, 2021) – Centauri Health Solutions, Inc. (“Centauri”), an innovative provider of healthcare technology and services, has achieved Interim Certification status by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for its HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) management and reporting solution, well ahead of the new Oct. 1 deadline.
Once official certification is granted in December 2021, Centauri will remain one of the few companies in the U.S. who have been continuously certified since 2006 by NCQA.
NCQA Certification requires vendors to certify each year to ensure compliance with the most current HEDIS® specifications. This certification is the most comprehensive offered and is comprised of 88 HEDIS measures, Allowable Adjustments, and Systematic Sampling for Measurement Year 2021.

“We are incredibly proud of the dedication and hard work of our Certification team, which allowed Centauri to become what we believe is the first vendor to be fully certified for Measure Year 2021,” said Corey Collins, Centauri’s Delivery Owner for Quality.
