Date:1/11/2011

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Clients of Argus Health Systems, Inc. and DST Health Solutions, LLC, now have access to a customizable, rules-based product designed to clinically edit and price medical drug claims. Medical Drug Management Service™ (MDMS) is a new, DST HealthCare-branded solution developed to facilitate effective drug trend management, assist with appropriate and consistent patient care and significantly improve management of medical drug spend. DST HealthCare Holdings, Inc., consists of Argus Health Systems, Inc. and DST Health Solutions.

"Health plans will need to increase their focus on outcomes and compliance in order to operate more efficiently and maintain mandated minimum medical loss ratios," said Jonathan Boehm, president and chief executive officer of DST HealthCare.  

MDMS applies a structured approach to medical pricing administration, data management and compliance editing. MDMS facilitates NDC-level pricing and rebate administration, integrates medical and pharmacy reporting, and produces medical claims that require less time and money to process.

"Health plans must focus on the total cost of medication administered in the medical setting, and support patient-centered intervention, in order to meet these new industry mandates," Boehm said. "The ability to measure results, provide feedback, drive payment for performance, and modify programs will help optimize results and promote quality."

"Medical Drug Management Service supports customizable clinical and pricing rules for drugs with HCPCS (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System) Level II codes, and automatically identifies appropriate intervention opportunities," said John Aforismo, chief executive officer and founder of RJ Health Systems. RJ Health Systems provides accurate drug intelligence to the healthcare industry through customizable databases, patient education materials, and consulting services.  

DST HealthCare's MDMS solution provides reporting, analytics, trending and modeling of member, provider, drug, prescribing and utilization patterns. MDMS produces detailed clinical edits that promote patient safety and lower healthcare costs.

As wholly-owned subsidiaries of DST Systems, these two companies jointly developed MDMS to help health plans effectively manage specialty drug costs.
