NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--McKesson Health Solutions (MHS) has announced that InterQual® Criteria, the standard for evidence-based clinical decision support, is now accessible on demand through new cloud-based implementations of InterQual® Online, InterQual® Anonymous Review, and InterQual® Transparency. This transition brings the benefits of cloud computing to InterQual customers, including fast and easy multi-tenant access via popular web browsers, automatic updates, and reduced maintenance requirements.
InterQual’s objective, evidence-based medical and behavioral health clinical content can now be utilized via SaaS (software as a service) technology. Payers and providers can simply open a browser and log in to access InterQual. With secure, fast cloud access, it’s now easier than ever to use InterQual Criteria—including Level of Care, Planning, and Behavioral Health criteria—to help make appropriate care decisions across the medical and behavioral health levels of care, as well as assist in improving care planning.
“This transition to the cloud continues our commitment to invest in technology solutions that help streamline care management,” said Nilo Mehrabian, VP Product Management, Decision Management, at MHS. “Forty years ago, InterQual debuted as books that users would page through and annotate. Today you can access InterQual Criteria through a variety of applications and platforms, from desktop PCs to mobile devices to connected automated services and, now, via the cloud. We’re committed to ensuring our customers can get fast, easy access to the InterQual Criteria they need when and where they need it.”
InterQual evidence-based criteria and technology solutions help improve clinical decision-making and care management across the medical and behavioral health continuums of care. The InterQual clinical development team synthesizes the most current, best evidence into a fully referenced decision support tool. InterQual’s development process is founded on rigorous review of the literature, and includes extensive peer review by practicing clinical experts across the United States.
