AHIP Medicaid Summit 2013: Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions Chief Medical Officer Says Collaboration, New Delivery Models Are Key To Bending The Cost Curve In Cancer Care

Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions provides clinical, reimbursement and distribution services to help health care professionals, payors and pharmaceutical companies deliver quality, cost-effective care to patients with complex diseases. Since launching the industry's first clinical pathways program for Oncology in 2008, and the first clinical pathways program for Rheumatology in 2011, Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions has partnered with nine health insurance companies to launch Clinical Pathways programs in 12 states and Washington, D.C. Its Clinical Pathways programs have also been proven to help insurers improve patient outcomes and physician engagement while reducing annual aggregate costs related to treating breast, colon and lung cancers.

Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions also provides proprietary technology, tools, educational programs and training to help doctors within payor networks implement and monitor use of clinical pathways. Its medical benefit management system, PathWare™ Decision Transaction Solutions, makes it easier for physicians to participate in clinical pathways programs and provides physicians with real-time decision support at the point of care, including easy access to clinical pathways for various types of cancer. The tool also removes many of the administrative burdens that are associated with treating patients whose treatment plans require specialty medications, which often require physicians to obtain approval prior to prescribing. It also captures clinical results and tracks cost savings of pathways – without additional administrative work.
