Certification demonstrates company’s continued commitment to high quality member-level support.
BOSTON, Mass. – September 17, 2014 – Health Dialog today announced that its 24/7 Nurse Line has received its two-year certification by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) under the Health Information Products (HIP) certification process. The Health Dialog program has been awarded certification every year it has applied, continuing to demonstrate the company’s commitment to delivering the highest quality 24/7 Nurse Line program.
“Earning NCQA’s HIP Certification demonstrates that an organization has expertise in gathering and disseminating healthcare information for health plan members,” said Kathleen C. Mudd, Vice President, Product Delivery, NCQA. “Health Dialog is to be commended for being one of the first organizations in the nation to be reviewed for these services.”

It is governed by NCQA’s rigorous Standards for Certification and developed with the assistance of representatives from the industry, as well as input from health plans. The process evaluates a HIP organization’s management of various aspects of its data collection, system operations, and the process it uses to continuously improve the services it provides.
“Health Dialog is committed to providing high-quality programs and solutions and NCQA certification is an important benchmark for ensuring we continue to do just that,” said David Barlow, SVP of Operations for Health Dialog.
