InterQual evidence-based criteria will support eQHealth’s high-quality care coordination and utilization review

December 9, 2015 — eQHealth Solutions, a non-profit healthcare technology and population health management company, has signed a long-term agreement to continue its use of McKesson’s InterQual and CareEnhance Review Manager. eQHealth will use InterQual evidence-based clinical criteria for its state Medicaid contracts in Florida, Illinois, Mississippi and Colorado, in addition to its other commercial lines.
