“The increases in year over year
healthcare spending are unsustainable and the factors impacting the delivery of
value-based healthcare services make it almost impossible for consumers to make
an informed decision,” said Kenneth Berry, President and Owner, K.B. Berry
& Associates, Inc.  “To be successful
in controlling healthcare spending, you need a company that offers multiple and
disciplined integrated care models with a strong track record of controlling
costs.  HMC HealthWorks is one of the
only companies I know that can do this.”

 

HMC HealthWorks is improving the
delivery of care and controlling of healthcare costs by identifying key health
issues and areas of cost improvement when plan sponsors and their participants
engage in its clinically-integrated models of care in chronic disease
management, behavioral health, mental health, EAP and wellness programs and PBM
initiatives.  With its state of the art
data warehouse, data mining capabilities and best practices in utilization
management, HMC HealthWorks generates critical insight to continually improve
healthcare management for its clients.

 

“With the ability to partner with a reputable
healthcare cost containment strategist like Kenneth Berry, HMC HealthWorks will
accelerate its mission toward further reducing costs for plan sponsors by
helping the medical professionals make appropriate decisions about medical
necessity, the selection of facilities with the best cost and quality metrics
and the appropriate level of care,” said Dr. Janis DiMonaco, President and CEO
of HMC HealthWorks. “We are looking forward to working with K.B. Berry &
Associates to reduce unwarranted variations in treatments and costs so plan
sponsors and participants can make better informed decisions.”

 

HMC HealthWorks has partnered with
organizations like Medecision, a technology leader in population health
management solutions for risk-bearing entities.
