Population health management company MCM has been selected by Regional Care, Inc. (RCI), a leading third-party healthcare administrator, to provide a full array of medical management services for RCI employer groups. The companies’ shared commitments to service, flexibility, and a client-first attitude guaranteed a smooth transition and profitable daily operations between them. In addition to enhancing operational efficiency, the mutually beneficial partnership has brought clinical and financial value to the clients of RCI.
“Joining forces with RCI was really a win-win for all concerned,” MCM President Mike O’Connor said, “and not just from an operational standpoint; we’re seeing tangible cost and care management benefits for RCI clients.”
With over 25 years of experience in population health management services, MCM provides TPAs, Health and Welfare Funds and health plans with risk assessment, care management, and health promotion tools. As one of the leading third-party healthcare administrators, RCI offers unique ways to provide quality services while managing costs. Both companies are built on foundations of exemplary service and commitment to client outcomes, making their partnership a natural force multiplier.
“Our partnership with MCM is based on shared values,” said RCI CEO Steve Hetzel. “Working together strengthens both of our companies and enables us to put the needs of our clients—both clinical and financial—first.”
The common goals of MCM and RCI have eased operational integration, as both companies operate in ways designed to put service and client needs first. “We’ve been pleased with how easily our two companies work together,” said Carol Kuhn, RCI Vice President of Operations, who was instrumental in orchestrating the partnership. In the short time since the partnership began, MCM and RCI have seen increased efficiencies in administration and improved access to innovative medical care, which has helped offer better medical opportunities and lower costs to RCI clients.
“Bringing together two quality companies that share a passion for client services has provided great benefits for our clients,” Kuhn said, “We’re excited to see where this partnership will take us in the future.”
