McKesson renews Pennsylvania disease management and primary care case management programmes

McKesson UK : 13 November, 2007  (New Product)
McKesson Health Solutions, a business unit of McKesson, and the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare have announced that the State has renewed its disease management and primary care case management programmes.
The renewal began October 1, 2007 and continues through to June 30, 2009. The programmes started on March 1, 2005.

The programmes will continue to provide services to about 290,000 eligible children and adults who live in the Commonwealth’s 42 mostly rural counties. Nursing staff helps those with asthma, diabetes, COPD, coronary artery disease and heart failure.

“With DPW’s support, we’re making several significant changes that will help improve programme outcomes. McKesson will utilise the community-based model that we’ve successfully employed with other Medicaid programmes, more sophisticated predictive modelling and increased interaction with high-volume practices,” said Emad Rizk, MD, president, McKesson Health Solutions.

The current pay-for-performance (P4P) programme will be expanded to include 27 new beneficiary-related measures to encourage provider participation. New P4P measures include:

- Retinal eye exam by eye care professional
- HbA1c testing
- Obtaining an LDL test

Additional community-based interventions include McKesson nurses who will travel to the homes of beneficiaries to administer the disease management programme.
