Agadia Systems Inc. and Comprehensive Care Corporation Announce Agreement to Provide Services to CompCare's Major Health Network

PARSIPPANY, N.J. and TAMPA, Fla., April 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Agadia Systems Inc. (Agadia) of New Jersey, noted for its ability to improve the quality of care and expedite prior authorization healthcare services, and Comprehensive Care Corporation (CompCare) of Tampa, Florida (OTC BB: CHCR) announced today the signing of an agreement for Agadia to provide its services to CompCare de Puerto Rico, a subsidiary of CompCare. 

Agadia offers a web-based software solution, PAHub™, that simplifies and streamlines the prior authorization management of prescription drugs, medical services and durable medical equipment processes. CompCare provides behavioral health and at-risk psychotropic pharmacy management services for managed care companies and has elected to use PAHub™ to automate its pharmacy utilization management processes in Puerto Rico.

CompCare de Puerto Rico's Medical Director Cecilia Pardo said, "PAHub will be beneficial in several key areas of our Pharmacy Management Program. We will be able to accommodate, with less staff, a greater volume of prior authorization requests, increase our processing speed, and optimize our clinical decision making processes.  All of this translates to improved patient care, cost-effectiveness and higher margins. We chose PAHub because it offers the best solution across the board to not only meet our recently launched at-risk Pharmacy Management Program needs, but also to enhance our wellness-based initiatives that aim to maximize the overall health of our members and lower prescription drug costs by eliminating wasteful gaps and overlaps in care." 

"We are excited to add CompCare de Puerto Rico to our portfolio of customers. Our commitment to quality, innovation and our customers differentiates us in the market place. PAHub provides our customers the ability to improve care and control costs through automation," said Scott L. Furletti, Vice President of Agadia.
