With more and more oncolytics targeting specific alterations in tumors, the area of precision oncology is developing rapidly. To help bring some insight into this market, Magellan Rx Management, a division of Magellan Health, Inc., and Trapelo Health, a wholly owned subsidiary of NeoGenomics Bioinformatics, recently unveiled a collaboration aimed at helping both providers and payers navigate this complex space and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
The offering combines Magellan Rx’s comprehensive oncology management solution and Trapelo’s precision-medicine platform, which provides fast, accurate testing and treatment decision support. Trapelo links providers, laboratories and payers by providing access to molecular testing information, allowing providers to order tests from preferred labs and interpreting those results, including identifying appropriate, evidence-based treatments. It offers automated prior authorization, incorporates health plan policies and eliminates unneeded medical redocumentation. These services will support Magellan Rx’s medical pharmacy program, which addresses various aspects of cancer care such as guideline-supported prior authorization, drug waste, personalized dosing, oral oncology management, post-service claim edits and provider network management.
