Inovalon will present on "Understanding the Rate Differential among Dual Eligible and Non-Dual Eligible Beneficiaries on the Star Quality Measure for Appropriate Treatment of Hypertension in Diabetes Patients." Inovalon's abstract was awarded the highest "GOLD" rating by a panel of AMCP editors with the help of 19 additional reviews, based on scores for relevance to managed care, bias, originality, clarity, and quality of the work.

The study was supported by data from Inovalon's Medical Outcomes Research for Effectiveness and Economics Registry (MORE2 Registry®). The purpose was to further examine Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Star Quality Measures for appropriate treatment of hypertension in diabetes between Dual Eligible (DE) and non-DE health plan members. Differences were found in the use of concurrent blood pressure medications, health services utilization, and prevalence of comorbid cardiovascular disorders between DE and non-DE members that may impact the quality measure rate. According to the study's authors, these differences indicate a need for further testing of this measure to assure it is a true measure of better quality of care and not a reflection of different characteristics and service utilization rates among DEs.

A prior study published by Inovalon, titled "The Impact of Dual Eligible Populations on CMS Five-Star Quality Measures and Member Outcomes in Medicare Advantage Health Plans," showed that DE members performed worse on 9 out of 10 key CMS Star Quality Measures and the only measure on which DEs performed better is one that examines use of recommended blood pressure medications in people with diabetes (Diabetes Treatment: BPD).

"Inovalon is harnessing the power of large longitudinal data using sophisticated statistical analytics to better understand differential performance on quality outcome measures at the member level," said Dan Rizzo, Chief Innovation Officer at Inovalon. "The goal of this research is to identify those factors contributing to consistently worse performance on clinical outcome measures among dual eligible beneficiaries to help guide interventions and policies aimed at improving care for this vulnerable population."

Inovalon's Statistical Research Team co-authors include: Sandhya Mehta, PhD; John F. Scoggins, PhD; Barton T. Jones, MS; and Christie Teigland, PhD.
