Health Plan Select (Athens, Ga.) will use ITA Partners' (Philadelphia) Eviti technology for cancer patients.
Eviti, which was launched in August, is meant to help align prescribed cancer treatments with patients' insurance plan language at the point of prescription.
“Our goal is to ensure that our patients receive the appropriate care. eviti allows our oncologists to access the most up-to-date, comprehensive cancer care knowledge base available – in real time. And, because it also includes our plan language, we can provide approvals almost immediately, drastically reducing decision-making time,” Dr. Geoffrey Cole, medical director at Health Plan Select, says in a statement.
Eviti includes a Web-based decision-support engine and a digital oncology treatment library. Together, these provide access to the latest, nationally accepted evidence-based treatment standards for more than 120 cancer types, while also incorporating individual insurance plan language for each patient, according to the company. It can be used as a Web-based application or as an integrated component within electronic health records software.
