CAQH has convened a cross-section of healthcare leaders to improve the accuracy of provider data for both industry stakeholders and patients. The Provider Data Action Alliance will develop a roadmap that articulates a vision and actionable strategies for obtaining and sharing better information. Alliance participants represent health, dental and vision plans; provider organizations; health systems; government; and health information exchanges.
The Alliance was a result of the 2016 Provider Data Summit, a CAQH-hosted conference where more than 100 industry leaders met to discuss provider data challenges. Attendees reached agreement on the priorities for improving provider data and called for further industry-wide collaboration. Summit discussions were informed by a white paper created by CAQH with support from Manatt Health, a leading health policy and research firm.
