Cardinal Health has acquired Mirixa, a leading provider of technology-enabled solutions for the provision of medication therapy management, from the National Community Pharmacists Association. The business will integrate into OutcomesMTM at Cardinal Health.
Established in 2005 by the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA), Mirixa was founded as a direct result of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA) which included requirements for Medication Therapy Management (MTM) programs.
Since its founding, Mirixa has expanded its offerings beyond MTM to include solutions that address Star Ratings; adherence and omission gaps in care; HEDIS quality measures; formulary alignment; and disease-specific medication management for health plans, PBMs, and employers.
Mirixa offers the broadest scope of national network delivery, client program configurability, and breadth of programs in the market for pharmacy-delivered patient care services. With the largest experience base, Mirixa currently serves the most health plan patients with its portfolio of solutions.
Mirixa recently unveiled the MirixaPro 6.0 platform. Based on industry research and market feedback, the latest version of MirixaPro includes major advancements to ensure the platform offers pharmacists, patients, and plan sponsors the tools needed for the most efficient, high quality, and compliant delivery of MTM and Adherence services.
OutcomesMTM is the national leader in the design, delivery and administration of MTM programs. The Outcomes team is committed to leveraging local relationships among pharmacists, patients and prescribers, along with innovative technology to help achieve optimal health outcomes.
OutcomesMTM links more than 100,000 local chain, independent and health-administration of MTM programs. Contracted with more than 50 U.S. health plans, OutcomesMTM provides MTM coverage to 5.5 million patients.
This expanded portfolio from Cardinal Health will bring payers an enhanced pharmacy services network and will standardize care delivery, documentation and billing for MTM services, according to Cardinal Health. Merging the technology platforms deployed by Mirixa and OutcomesMTM is an important priority of the transaction, the companies said. In addition, this combination simplifies the workflow for pharmacy staffs in retail, clinic and long-term care settings, allowing them to more effectively deliver services to patients.
