HHS Texas Management Selects InterQual to Guide Care for Medicare Population

May 16, 2008 - Heritage Health Systems Texas Management Inc. (HHS Texas Management) has licensed McKesson's InterQual Criteria to help ensure appropriateness of care for its Medicare population of 265,000 across several states including Texas, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Louisiana and Florida.

"We needed a new solution that would be a better fit with our care delivery model and could address Medicare guidelines across the various states we serve," said Sandra McAnallen, HHS Texas Management senior vice president. "InterQual was selected for its clinical rigor, ease of integration into our business processes, and because it supports our focus on level of care decisions based on the individual versus the diagnosis."

HHS Texas Management will access the gold-standard criteria through InterQual Online, a secure Web-based application. The hosted service allows for anytime, anywhere views of the comprehensive InterQual content to facilitate decision making during HHS Texas Management's pre-certification, admission, concurrent stay and retrospective review processes.
