Apollo Managed Care, Inc. (Apollo), an organization offering medical review criteria and clinical guidelines, today announced that L.A. Care Health Plan will use the Apollo Medical Review Criteria Guidelines for Managing Care® as a complement to their primary guideline resource.
"We at Apollo Managed Care are so pleased to have a highly respected and distinguished organization such as L.A. Care Health Plan see the value that we provide,” said Margaret Bischel, MD, Sr. Clinical Editor, Apollo Managed Care. “Having L.A. Care Health Plan join our growing list of subscribers is a tremendous feat for us as it shows Apollo's commitment to providing current, quality, evidence-based criteria suitable for large health plans.”
By utilizing Apollo’s cost-effective, comprehensive, easy-to-use guidelines, L.A. Care Health Plan is ensured access to criteria for the rarest medical conditions as well as direct access to clinical editors so they can request criteria not currently published in Apollo’s software.
“The pace of change in healthcare is growing exponentially. We needed a dynamic partner who could keep up with this rapid evolution in real time. The platform is easy to search and offers comprehensive guidelines reflective of in the moment medicine,” said David Kagan, MD, Senior Medical Director, Direct Network.
Updated daily, the Apollo criteria and guidelines are made available on a real-time basis via the Apollo Managed Care web portal. A proprietary algorithm provides notifications when a client searches on an area or subject not currently addressed within one of the existing applications. When this occurs, the Apollo team captures the required data and incorporates the new guideline into the software. All Apollo guidelines are subject to quarterly and annual reviews.
In July, Apollo announced the company earned Health Content Provider Accreditation from URAC – demonstrating a comprehensive commitment to quality care, improved processes and better patient outcomes.
