Oncology Analytics Partners With Gateway Health to Provide Data-Driven Solution for Medical Oncology
Pennsylvania-based health plan is recognized as a market leader in Dual Special Needs Plans (D-SNP) for Medicare
Oncology Analytics, a leading technology-enabled service company that provides health plans, providers and patients with an evidence-based, real-world analytics approach to utilization management, purpose-built for oncology, has announced that Gateway Health, LLC, a leading managed care organization dedicated to caring for the “total health” of its members, has implemented its utilization management solution for medical oncology.
Oncology Analytics is currently managing Gateway’s Medicare population for oncology prior authorization requests and will begin managing its Medicaid population later this year. This includes outpatient, anti-cancer, and supportive care drugs within both the medical and pharmacy care benefit. By combining the reviews of both the pharmacy benefit drugs with the medical benefit drugs, Gateway members are assured of a more complete assessment of their care. Providers participating in Gateway’s network can also conveniently access the Oncology Analytics platform through single sign-on, using the same credentials they use for the Gateway Provider Portal. In partnering with Oncology Analytics, Gateway will also gain access to Oncology Insights, a real-world data analytics solution that combines clinical oncology data with Gateway’s health plan data.
