With up to 40% of your Star Ratings attributed to medication-related quality measures, it pays to partner with a team that places value on measurably improved health. Better outcomes mean reduced costs for you and healthier lives mean more satisfaction for your members. That’s a powerful win/win.

PharmMD’s foundation is rooted in delivering the business intelligence tools and operational models needed to drive pharmacy quality outcomes. This foundation and market-leading evolution have positioned PharmMD as the quality leader in outcomes-based Star Ratings measures. The culmination of this effort is our StarSolutions Suite – specifically designed and tailored to meet our Plan/PBM partners needs. Our solution integrates the power of innovative StarWatch analytics with optimized Medication Therapy Management (MTM) and member outreach services.

We wrote the book on delivering effective MTM programs, a key component of Star Ratings success. Those best practices frame the functionality of our StarSolutions Suite. Our qualified clinicians use motivational interviewing to educate on healthy habits, remove barriers to adherence, advise prescribers and members on safer alternatives and intervene directly through our distributed clinical network. The resulting benefits include increased medication adherence, enhanced member safety, and improved overall Star Ratings performance. We put members first, one person at a time.

In the 2014 measurement period, PharmMD deployed its StarSolutions suite of products across 20 individual H-Plans and 68 unique Patient Safety measures. The plans demographics ranged from national blues plans, regional blues plans, and regional dual/SNP plans. The results were a resounding success. In comparing year-over-year results from 2013 to 2014 measurement periods, our Plan partners saw an improvement of a 1 or 2 Star measure increase in 62% of Part D Patient Safety Measures. Additionally, 35% of the targeted Part D Patient Safety Measures maintained their previous year’s rating – 3/4 of which were at a 4 Star rating. Only two measures declined, and upon further analysis, these attritions were directly related to formulary benefit design. Download our 2015-2016 Pharmacy Quality Trend Report
