McKesson Health Solutions enables cloud-based implementations for InterQual Criteria
NEWTON, Mass.— McKesson Health Solutions on Tuesday announced that InterQual Criteria 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 multi-tenant access via popular web browsers, automatic updates and reduced maintenance requirements.
The objective, evidence-based medical and behavioral health clinical content can now be utilized via SaaS (software as a service) technology. 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, McKesson stated.
“This transition to the cloud continues our commitment to invest in technology solutions that help streamline care management,” stated Nilo Mehrabian, VP product management at McKesson Health Solutions. “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.
