Quality Health Strategies Earns Prestigious CMMI Level 3 Appraisal Status

posted on January 26, 2018


Easton, MD – January 25, 2018 Quality Health Strategies Inc. announced today that it has been awarded the highly regarded Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Level 3 appraisal status. This is an excellent performance improvement model for competitive organizations that want to achieve high-performance operations. Building upon an organization’s business performance objectives, CMMI provides a set of practices for improving processes, resulting in a quality improvement system that paves the way for better operations and performance.

The appraisal was performed by Certified Lead Appraiser Jeff Dalton of Broadsword Solutions Corporation – a CMMI Institute Partner company based in Detroit, Michigan. The CMMI Institute is a subsidiary of the ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association).

A CMMI certification enables others to identify the capability of an organization, and was originally introduced via the Department of Defense to enable it to determine the maturity and efficiency levels of the companies they hired. It looks at industry best practices and matches them to the output of an organization.

Robert Porter, MES software engineer for Quality Health Strategies, led the team in an intensive 18 months effort. “I am truly impressed to see such a total commitment to a culture of excellence from the entire organization. The Executive Leadership provided their full support by investing in both internal and external training, workshops, conferences and on-site consulting services for our team members.”

Mr. Porter also noted that the standard completion time for this level of effort is usually about 43 months. Quality Health Strategies was able to achieve level 3 appraisal in short order as it already incorporated much of the standards required in its everyday practices, and already achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification. “We were ahead from the start,” says Porter. “I am quite convinced that our Maturity Level 3 status will provide our customers with the best results and superior quality in all of our products and services.”

Only a fraction of organizations worldwide achieve a level 3 CMMI status.
