Magellan Pharmacy Solutions’ Whole Health RxSM Delivers A Total Health Approach To Integrate Prescribing Practices

Whole Health Rx analytics can identify the following outlier prescribing patterns:

  • Inappropriate medication dosing (maximum and minimum)
  • Polypharmacy utilization—too many forms of medication used by a patient as a result of duplicate therapy and multiple prescribers
  • Inappropriate use of medications
  • Failure of patients to fill their prescriptions in a timely fashion

“Our communication strategy provides outreach in many different ways - face-to-face, virtual consultations or by telephone, email, fax or mail,” said Gary Henschen, M.D., chief medical officer, Magellan Behavioral Health. “Our proprietary clinical protocols were developed by our multi-disciplinary Magellan Clinical Excellence Committee using the latest literature and best practice experience. The Committee consists of a wide range of specialties, including adult psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, internal medicine, cardiology and clinical pharmacy practice. Through targeted interventions and education, we can improve prescribing practices, clinical outcomes, and member safety, as well as reduce cost and provide significant return on investment to our customers.”
