Innovative Care Management and HMC HealthWorks combine solutions to improving clinical and financial outcomes
Portland, OR and Jupiter, FL – October 15, 2013 – Innovative Care Management, Inc., a leading provider of Utilization, Large Case and Maternity Management oversight to self-funded health care plans, today announced an alliance with HMC HealthWorks. By incorporating new tools for keeping health plan members healthy, including shared decision aids, self-management programs, and multimedia tools and videos, this arrangement offers new opportunities for customers and business partners of both organizations. This alliance with HMC HealthWorks, an industry-leading provider of Wellness, Disease Management, and Predictive Modeling capabilities for over 30 years, will offer mutual clients “best-in-class” programs throughout the Health Care continuum.
The partnership will provide mutual clients and business partners with customized solutions for acute and chronic conditions, which will translate into greatly reduced financial exposure. In addition, already established clinical and operational protocols between the two organizations will promote “real-time” handoffs between clinicians assuring timely engagement necessary to mitigate outcomes and changing behaviors.
Kris Hallock, RN, CCM and CEO of ICM says,
“This alliance makes great sense because ICM and HMC HealthWorks both offer complementary services, but at different points along the healthcare timeline. Wellness and robust Disease Management are a natural extension of the management programs ICM currently offers. Linking these two cost containment strategies will lead to better health for our members and more cost control for our clients.”
According to Dr. Janis DiMonaco, President and CEO of HMC HealthWorks,
“HMC HealthWorks alliance with ICM provides a total comprehensive health solution for our clients, and allows us to demonstrate to various stakeholders our commitment to quality programs.”
