LISLE, Ill. — The Pharmacy Quality Alliance has given one of its top awards to pharmacy benefit manager Catamaran Corp., the PBM said Friday.
Catamaran announced that it received a 2013 PQA Quality Award recognizing its five-star rating on all PQA measures in the Part D Star Ratings program. The PQA's stated goal is to improve patient health by championing clear performance measures for medication management, and the recognition program for prescription drug plans recognizes Medicare plans that have demonstrated outstanding performance in medication-related quality.
"We are honored to be recognized by PQA for our commitment to continuously enhancing the quality of care in the Medicare arena," Catamaran chairman and CEO Mark Thierer said. "By leveraging our resources, skill and scale, Catamaran has achieved powerful results in improving health outcomes and reducing costs, all with a laser-sharp focus on patient safety."
