Clinical Support Services, Inc. (CSS), a national leader in providing Medication Therapy Management (MTM) software and solutions, has developed iDealTherapy, a platform that assesses a patient’s current drug therapy and determines if a different medication may be a better value for the condition being treated.

Unlike traditional Drug Utilization Review (DUR) processes, iDealTherapy incorporates current clinical information provided by prescribers with pharmacy claims data to evaluate drug therapy utilization. Benefits include: clinically appropriate recommendations, prescriber-authorized recommendations, targeted recommendations, enhanced response rate and population insight. Currently, iDealTherapy offers employers broad-based clinical programs focused on gastrointestinal, dyslipidemia, osteoporosis, rhinitis and Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID) therapies.

The iDealTherapy platform is powered by MTMPath, a proprietary, web-based software program that provides a clear and consistent process of data collection, workflow management and recommendation creation. The process enables CSS clinicians to effectively and efficiently manage large quantities of data in order to use evidence-based algorithms for optimal therapy results.

iDealTherapy may be utilized across an entire employer base segmented by disease state or by drug class. By using pharmacy claim information while integrating all of the best practices of utilization and case management, CSS's program can provide quality improvement of employee care.

“This is a well-engineered process that ensures an enhanced response rate to clinical data requests and therapy changes,” said James Notaro, RPh, Ph. D., president of CSS. “The burden on the healthcare system is minimized, which offers both cost-effective and high-quality care.”

About CSS: Founded in 1999 by pharmacists and technologists, CSS is staffed by experienced clinicians, software developers and operations personnel who develop innovative and proprietary technology tools that improve patient care while providing financial value. At the heart of the business is Medication Pathfinder – built in a S-O-A-P (Subjective-Objective Assessment Plan) Note structure to help pharmacists move more quickly through complex patient Medication Therapy Management (MTM) assessment procedures. Structured data storage is one of the main differentiating features of the MTMPath system.
