InterQual® content is the most widely used, evidence-based clinical decision support for care management because of its sound clinical logic, which rests on a rigorous, comprehensive development cycle. Refined and proven over 30 years, this development cycle combines systematic, critical assessment of the medical literature by highly trained clinical development teams with feedback from an InterQual clinical panel of 1,100 experts. InterQual® criteria, published by Change Healthcare LLC, is used in many of Wellmark’s medical review processes to support the medical necessity of health care services.
