Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
Healthcare Solutions, the parent company of Cypress Care, ScripNet and Procura Management, today announced that it was honored to receive the Catamaran Innovation Award at Catamaran’s client advisory meeting. Conferred annually, the Innovation Award recognizes a client who has partnered with Catamaran to create cutting edge programs that improves cost and/or quality outcomes. This year, Healthcare Solutions was recognized for its clinical and IT solutions that have helped to improve patient outcomes while also yielding significant cost savings for the company’s workers’ compensation customers.
“Since the start of our relationship in 2011, Healthcare Solutions and Catamaran have worked collaboratively to identify opportunities to improve the pharmacy delivery system and to implement solutions that take advantage of leading positions in technology and clinical expertise,” said Jim Andrews, R.Ph., executive vice president of pharmacy services for Healthcare Solutions.
Examples of the initiatives recognized by the Innovation Award include Healthcare Solutions’ Rx360™ program, a unique solution that has enabled Healthcare Solutions to deliver average penetration rates of 97 percent for all pharmacy-related spend, and resulting in improved savings for customers by getting more bills under management. In addition, the company has also implemented innovative clinical initiatives that seek to monitor and address appropriate dosing levels of narcotic opioids and acetaminophen in the injured worker population that it manages. Results from the company’s acetaminophen effort indicate a 54 percent decrease in claimants receiving more than four grams of acetaminophen, which is the at-risk daily dosage level.
“Healthcare Solutions has been aggressive in developing and launching new programs over the past year to help ensure appropriate utilization and support customer cost management goals,” said David A. George, chief executive officer of Healthcare Solutions.
“These programs have enabled Healthcare Solutions to differentiate itself in the marketplace and have produced positive results for their clients and the injured workers they manage,” said Greg Buscetto, segment president, strategic solutions for Catamaran. “These programs represent the very best thinking of Healthcare Solutions and Catamaran and are made possible by flexible and adaptable technology.”
