Determine the Best Choice of Test for the Right Cost at the Point of Care
McKesson's advanced diagnostics solutions help health plans manage molecular diagnostics (MDx) by giving physicians and clinical labs intelligent, automated decision support tools at the point of decision that enable transparent, immediate access to coverage, network and utilization rules. The result: better control of MDx medical spending.
Our solutions offer a comprehensive step-by-step approach to drive effective use of MDx by helping you:
- Determine the best choice of test using evidence-based clinical content
- Measure volumes and cost through retrospective analysis and benchmarking, with ongoing data collection
- Define and codify relevant medical, benefit, network and payment policy
- Manage costs by influencing behavior at the point of care
Our underlying IT platform is hosted and web services based, dramatically reducing implementation, operating and maintenance costs and shortening time to value.
Our approach combines:
- Clear Coverage™, a clinical and financial decision support software-as-a-service solution that helps reduce costs and provider hassles by automating authorization, coverage determination and network compliance processes, including providing evidence-based support for medical necessity decisions
- InterQual® Molecular Diagnostics Criteria, which provide evidence-based clinical decision support for molecular and genetic tests. You now have a tool for making effective utilization decisions at the point of care or in the preauthorization process, backed by the most current evidence at your fingertips.
- McKesson Diagnostics Exchange™, which provides a Web-based MDx and genetic test identification, cataloging and assessment program that uses Z-Codes to help identify, codify and establish transparent, evidence-based coverage and reimbursement standards.
- Clear Orders™, a solution for labs that aggregates orders regardless of source or format and performs all required medical necessity, ABN and specimen handling checks before a test is performed. The solution then routes orders to your laboratory information system (LIS) or to an appropriate lab for send-outs.
