NASHVILLE, March 19, 2019 - Pulse8, part of Veradigm®, an Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) business unit, the first – and ONLY one with a patent pending – healthcare analytics and technology company delivering complete visibility into the efficacy of Risk Adjustment, Quality Management, and Pharmacy Benefit Management programs, is excited to become the latest collaborating partner within the Health Plan Alliance Group Purchasing Organization (GPO). Pulse8 will be offering its Formul8 product, along with unique and valuable analytic insight, to members of the Alliance.

“We believe Health Plan Alliance members will benefit greatly from our Formul8 product. Pulse8 has considerable investments in benchmark and reference data, analytic tools and technology, and pharmacy management talent to provide the marketplace with a premiere analytic platform for managing its pharmacy spend,” said Scott Fries, MBA, CPA, Executive Vice President at Pulse8 and leader of the Formul8 team. “A solution like this is cost-prohibitive for smaller or regional health plans to build and maintain; however, it is an absolute necessity for them to compete. Formul8 provides the reporting, benchmarking, and analytics that are needed to lower unit costs, optimize utilization, and evolve their relationship with their pharmacy benefit manager.”

“Pulse8 has been an active Preferred Business Sponsor of the Alliance for the past three years, lending subject matter experts to our educational curriculum and serving a critical mass of our members with its leading-edge analytic solutions for risk adjustment and quality,” said Jaime González, DrPH, MSSW, MSHA, Chief Business Development Officer of the Health Plan Alliance. “We are excited to expand our partnership with Pulse8 and offer this valued pharmacy program to our members.”
