("TRHC") (TRHC), a leading provider of technology-enabled solutions to mitigate medication risk, reduce medical costs, and optimize client performance, today announced its health plan management group, PeakTPA, has signed an agreement to partner with Troy Medicare.

Troy’s care coordination data and TRHC’s technology, services, and revenue model optimize client financial management and help fulfill regulatory requirements for health plan functions. The expertise in health plan management means health plan organizations can focus on delivering high-quality care to members.
“Tabula Rasa is pleased to be selected as Troy’s technology, care coordination, and adjudication partner,” said TRHC Chairman and CEO Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD. “Pharmacy in a health plan is a key component, providing dramatic results in terms of quality, patient safety, and cost-of-care. We look forward to delivering upon this synergy for Troy Medicare.”
