ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA — FEBRUARY 15, 2017 —
The nation’s health care system is moving from volume to value, yet it remains fragmented and complex. Post-acute health care providers are facing increased pressure to move from fee-for-service to value-based payment. However, current market technology solutions to accelerate this journey have been criticized as too rigid and difficult to meet complex provider needs. In order to meet these needs, Maxwell Healthcare Associates (MHA) launches an operational and technology optimization consulting firm focused on collaborative use of people, process and technology for the future of healthcare in the home
MHA Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, Tom Maxwell, spent many years working with customers helping them adopt technology and gain efficiencies.The former Chief Operating Officer and Chief Strategy Officer for HomeCare HomeBase explained, "I was getting daily calls asking for help with utilization, adoption, optimization and interoperability. We saw the gap in the industry and decided to help bridge it."
MHA provides complete, in-depth operational assessments to both home care and hospice agencies across the nation. The operational assessment is more than skin deep. MHA identifies opportunities for agencies to become more efficient, cost effective and most importantly regulatory compliant from top to bottom, while adopting technology.
