Trapelo Health, Magellan Hope to Ease Prior Authorization for Precision Oncology Testing
The recently announced partnership between Trapelo Health and the Magellan Rx Management pharmacy benefits management arm of Magellan Health promises to make value-based oncology care more accessible by closing an important part of the treatment loop: insurance authorization and payment for biomarker-guided cancer therapy.
Last week, the companies announced plans to bundle their technologies to support this process.
Trapelo, of Burlington, Massachusetts, makes a clinical decision support system that links healthcare providers, testing laboratories, and payors, giving them access to molecular testing information, ordering, and results interpretation in order to optimize utilization of molecular testing services and offer the most appropriate care to patients.

Data seen as replacing policy as coverage tool for precision medicine
The era of big data might still be in its infancy, but payers are already dealing with a deluge of bits and bytes that threatens to overwhelm their ability to keep up with recent developments in medical science. Clynt Taylor, CEO of Intervention Insights Inc., of Burlington, Mass., told BioWorld MedTech that payers are starting to see the light when it comes to reacting to data that suggest a shift in coverage policy, but that over time, payers will replace those fixed policies with a data-driven approach that adapts to patients' needs in real time.

Physicians are key to making precision medicine investments pay off
As the practice of tailoring technology-driven treatment plans for each patient takes hold, physicians are being asked to make more specific decisions than ever before.
Finding the best care for a patient can be a constantly moving target. The number of stakeholders, the constant advance of new information and treatment options and the nuanced demands of different payers make for a maze of complexities to navigate. In the field of oncology, for example, nobody but a specialist could be expected to keep up with the growing wealth of knowledge in the treatment of individual cancers.
Yet most patients are treated by general oncologists who may not be abreast of every best course of action for specific conditions. These practices might not know which treatments a patient could be pre-approved for, or which payers are most likely to compensate and for what. As the practice of tailoring precision medicine plans for each patient takes hold, physicians are being asked to make more specific treatment decisions than ever before.
"You have labs, you have payers, you have providers and you have pharma – and they’re all interested in what the doctor is about to do with a patient," said Clynt Taylor, CEO of Intervention Insights, which makes a tool called Trapelo that helps streamline treatment and payment options.
