McKesson adds four health information technology partners to InterQual Alliance Partners programme

McKesson UK : 27 August, 2008  (Company News)
McKesson has added four health information technology partners to its long list of InterQual Alliance Partners.
The TriZetto Group, Health Solutions Plus, Intersect Healthcare, and MedAssets, are now partnering with McKesson to offer healthcare payors and providers streamlined access to InterQual Criteria, the gold standard in clinical decision support.

The new Alliance Partners join more than 20 other companies that partner with McKesson to bring care management software applications together into an integrated workflow. Through an annual validation process, McKesson confirms that the customised integrations Alliance Partners build into their own workflow applications provide optimal access to InterQual clinical content.

This year McKesson has provided Alliance Partners with tools to enhance the transparency of the validation process, empowering them to play a more active role that improves the speed and efficiency of the process. With partners receiving validation an average of two weeks earlier than last year, customers benefit from earlier access to the latest InterQual Criteria.

“In the twelfth year of the programme, we’re focused on strengthening our partner relationships and continuing to develop solutions that are delivered faster and in a more coordinated manner,” said Tammie Phillips, vice president of InterQual for McKesson Health Solutions. “Our goal is to ensure that our customers experience implementation of a single integrated offering from two partners that collaborate effectively.”

Over 4,000 healthcare stakeholders, including government agencies, health plans and providers use InterQual Criteria. InterQual content is unmatched in clinical integrity, helping to ensure appropriateness of care and increasing confidence in clinical decision-making. As the most widely used evidence-based clinical criteria, InterQual facilitates alignment between providers and payors in care management decisions.
