Shortlister hosted Matthew Baki, VP of Sales, who shared how Tria Health’s unique delivery model improves care and reduces costs for high-risk members with chronic conditions by including pharmacists in their care management solution. Given that medications are the primary treatment method for chronic conditions and people fail to take their medications as prescribed, pharmacists are an extremely important resource for high-risk patients.
Tria’s ideal client is self-funded with 500+ subscribers. Their solution concentrates on identifying and engaging plan members with chronic & specialty conditions that are responsible for 70-80% of health care utilization/cost. The average Tria patient takes over 10 medications, has 5-7 conditions and has 3 physician relationships; a unique challenge in managing multiple conditions, with multiple prescribers that are filled by multiple pharmacies overall, there is a lack of care coordination on their behalf.
Tria Health’s Pharmacy Advocate Program provides 1:1 consultations between a specially trained pharmacist at Tria Health and high-risk plan members. The overall goal is to help them achieve optimal health outcomes through care coordination with the members’ providers. Tria’s Specialty GuardRx delivers care management for members on high costing specialty medications and objective oversight of the plan.
As a population-based program, Tria’s RxPlan Protection Suite is designed to improve pharmacy utilization & outcomes across the entire plan. This includes providing cost saving opportunities via Tria Health’s SmartRx software that identifies brand and high-cost generics, expensive combo drugs and non-FDA approved drugs as well as non-formulary meds that can be switched to formulary medications. The program’s Compliance and Clinical Alerts further improve care, reduce waste and control cost.
Tria’s other population health programs include S.T.O.P. for tobacco cessation and LOSE for weight loss.
Five key differentiators of Tria Health include:

|Do employer & consultant users pay to access Shortlister?||Yes – There is a monthly subscription fee||No – Shortlister's public site has tens of thousands of visitors per month that are researching vendors. They do not pay to access this basic vendor data.|

|Can service providers pay to improve their position?||No – The Shortlister app's matching algorithm is completely neutral & unbiased. It matches employer & consultant users with service providers based on how closely the buyers requirements match the service provider's capabilities.||Yes – ONLY on Shortlister's public site. Service providers can bid to show up higher on listing pages. This is how Shortlister is compensated for the substantial effort it takes to curate this pages and vet vendor data.|
|What if a service provider doesn't pay Shortlister?||Nothing – Service providers don't pay a fee to participate on the Shortlister app and are matched based on how well their capabilities align with a buyer's demographics and needs.||Service providers will still be listed on the pages for the services they provide, they will just be listed below those that have bid to list higher on that particular product page.|
|What about the Top Vendor lists at the top of the product listing pages? Is there a fee to be listed?||Not Applicable – The Shortlister app doesn't display Top Vendor lists because the algorithm generates a custom list based on the customer's needs.||Yes - There is a nominal fee of $50 per quarter that's charged if a service provider is approved for a Top Vendor list. Shortlister evaluates vendor capabilities & market performance data to determine who should be listed. Evaluating this data takes considerable time and effort, so the nominal $50 fee covers the cost of the work it takes to curate these lists. If a vendor applies for a Top Vendor list but doesn’t meet the criteria, they are not charged a fee.|
