First published Monday May 2, 2005
The University awarded a contract for review of insurance claims to McKesson Information Solutions Inc. for an amount not to exceed $499,000.
These services are considered a sole source because the McKesson suite of Software (Pathways Contract Management, Trendstar and Healthquest) is copyrighted, and only McKesson has the knowledge and expertise to provide the required services. In order to conduct the retrospective review of claims, files will need to be transmitted and programs generated between the three programs. Data mining, data retrieval, authentication of data, and data entry of information will need to occur seamlessly and accurately among the three programs. Once the files have been submitted between the systems and special programs generated, an audit of payments will take place. This process will enable the Medical Center to identify underpayments, submit claims to third-party insurance carriers and follow-up with the carriers until additional payment is received.
