Providing comprehensive clinical editing content

KnowledgePacks supply the clinical foundation of rules and logic necessary to execute a specific payment policy or guideline. Each rule has a set of clinical data and rationale associated with it. The automated result is an edit: a recommendation to review, modify, deny, or allow a specific claim line.

Choose which ClaimsXten rules to implement based on your business needs. KnowledgePacks are defined by areas of interest, to align with your specific needs and lines of business. Being able to select and implement a smaller targeted set of rules enables you to define the scope of your implementations and may help you reduce costs. McKesson clinical experts develop and distribute quarterly KnowledgePack updates, so the number of rules continues to grow and drive continuous value across all of your payment policies.
