RESTON, Va., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mirixa Corporation today announced that The Assist Group, Inc., the leader in high-dollar medical claims review and resolution, has selected Mirixa to conduct Medication Therapy Management (MTM) services for members of its client Medicare and Medicaid plans, employer groups, and commercial health plans via the MirixaPro℠ platform.
The Assist Group CEO, Robert C. Malone, commented "The Assist Group's years of experience, combined with extensive healthcare data, shows that pharmacy costs are one of the top expenses for payers and patients. We are excited to partner with the leader in the Medication Therapy Management field. Clients who work with Mirixa through The Assist Group will pay nothing unless the service is utilized by the patient. Together, Mirixa and The Assist Group will save clients hundreds of thousands of dollars and further their missions in assisting clients with their healthcare cost containment needs."
Qualified members of The Assist Group clients will be eligible for a Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) and quarterly interactive follow-up medication reviews. The service, conducted by a pharmacist, will provide patients with a Personal Medication List (PML) and a Medication Action Plan (MAP).
"We are very excited about our partnership with The Assist Group," stated Stacey Lelko, Mirixa's Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Business Development. "With its unique ability to identify cost savings, MTM has demonstrated value for patients and payers over the years. The Assist Group's broad market reach and ability to bring MTM services to a variety of employer groups and health plans will improve patient outcomes while driving down health care costs."
