HealthSpring will deploy Sanovia's web based PA-Logic(TM) to automate the prior authorizations for its Medicare Advantage and standalone prescription drug plan members. By automating a traditionally manual process, HealthSpring will more efficiently manage their pharmaceutical prior authorization process. The improvements brought by PA-Logic(TM)'s automated clinical pathways mean a marked improvement in processing turn-around time, consistency of decision making, and quality of the decisions being rendered. PA-Logic(TM) gives HealthSpring a comprehensive solution automating the entire pharmaceutical prior authorization process, from initial request to decision. Ultimately, PA-Logic(TM) will allow HealthSpring to ensure that its members are receiving the right drug, at the right time and at the right dose, while significantly reducing turn-around time and cost, and improving quality.

"We are delighted to count HealthSpring among our growing list of customers. HealthSpring's selection of our PA-Logic(TM) pharmaceutical management product demonstrates their recognition that Sanovia's products will help them to continue to deliver on their goal of healthier members with lower medical costs," said Robert E. Tremain, President and CEO of Sanovia.

About PA-Logic(TM)

Sanovia's PA-Logic(TM) is a web based solution that automates the pharmaceutical prior authorization process. PA-Logic(TM) uses best-practice clinical guidelines to evaluate pharmaceutical requests, ensure adherence to benefit designs and enable appropriate decisions when requests are made. By combining automation with clinical best practices, PA-Logic(TM) gives its healthplan and Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) customers greater control and consistency in decision making, while driving down administrative costs and drug spend. The system manages and automates the pharmacy review process on an electronic platform, which reduces slow and error-prone paper-based methods, speeds routing of information and accelerates decisions to help prevent treatment delays. Plans can also allow their participating providers to access the system from their offices via the Internet, and submit requests electronically, thus eliminating the frustration of dealing with paper forms, phone calls, faxes and returns for incomplete information. PA-Logic(TM)'s letter writer and report generator functions automate workflow, produce real-time reports on pharmacy program operations and facilitate communications with patients and physicians.
