McKesson Health Solutions Acquires ClarityQx Payment Technology in VBR Portfolio Expansion.

MANews-(C)2009-2016

15 July 2016 - Massachusetts-based care management software provider McKesson Health Solutions has expanded its portfolio to include ClarityQx payment technology through the acquisition of Pennsylvania-based decision support software provider HealthQX, the company said.

This technology enhances McKesson's ability to help customers rapidly and cost-effectively transition to value-based care by automating and scaling complex payment models, such as retrospective and prospective bundled payment.

Health plans use ClarityQx for analytics and for automation of retrospective bundled payment models and McKesson's Episode Management to support automation of prospective bundled payment.

Pairing ClarityQx with McKesson's Episode Management gives health plans the ability to automate retrospective bundled payment processes currently and move to prospective payment as they are ready.

With the addition of ClarityQx, McKesson can offer health plans a more complete portfolio that can automate their medical policy, payment policy, value-based reimbursement models, provider management, and contract management.

ClarityQx was developed by HealthQX, a vendor of value-based payment analytic solutions for health plans and providers, which McKesson acquired in June.

McKesson provides healthcare services and information technology. It partners with payers, hospitals, physician offices, pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies, and others across the spectrum of care to build healthier organizations that deliver better care to patients in every setting.
