As part of our external quality review (EQR) contracts with the Medicaid agency of Washington, Acumentra Health produces an Annual EQR Technical Report. These reports fulfill federal requirements for independent review, evaluating the performance of the state’s contracted managed care organizations (MCOs) in meeting standards for access to care and the timeliness and quality of care. We also produce an annual analysis of the Washington MCOs’ performance on standard HEDIS measures.
