CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/14/14 -- Medical Cost Management Corporation, a leading provider of population health management services, dba MCM Solutions for Better Health, is pleased to announce a significant expansion of its Taft Hartley, organized labor and collectively bargained client base with the acquisition of Med-Care Management, a Florida based care management company. Advised by Ansley Capital Group, this acquisition creates one of the largest, independent, U.S. based companies offering both the Self-Insured and Taft Hartley market a comprehensive suite of sophisticated Risk Identification, Care, Catastrophic, Disease Management and Wellness solutions. The combined companies have fifty-eight years of experience helping their partners manage and improve the health and wellness of their plan participants. The combined organization moves forward together with a single mission: Better Health -- For the members we serve, the plans they belong to and the bottom line.
"Successfully managing health care utilization and cost today requires a true population health management approach. The first step to better health management is risk identification. The second step is utilizing the risk data across the care continuum for member outreach and intervention. You cannot manage or mitigate risk you have not identified and waiting for catastrophic, chronic and high dollar cases to take place before taking action is a recipe for disaster," said Michael O'Connor, President and CEO, MCM Solutions for Better Health. "MCM and Med-Care have worked side by side in the Taft Hartley space for a long time. I was pleased they approached MCM when the time came to broaden their suite of services and update their technology systems. We both have a history of putting our clients first and going the extra yard. That will surely continue."
"We look forward to expanding the services available to our clients via access to MCM's population health management programs. We are also very excited about implementing MCM's Clinical Data System that includes a comprehensive, benchmarked reporting system." said Margaret C. Lemkin, PhD, President Med-Care Management. "We will continue to provide the same excellent service our clients have come to expect from us as a subsidiary of MCM."
