Managed Health Care Associates, Inc. (MHA) Announces the Formation of the MHA ACO Network

PR Newswire

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Managed Health Care Associates, Inc. (MHA), a leading health care services and technology company focused on alternate site health care providers, is pleased to announce the formation of the MHA ACO Network. Working with both Commercial and Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), the MHA ACO Network will provide access to the largest national network of alternate site post-acute care providers in the country.

As ACOs begin to change the patient care model nationwide, coordination of care between acute and post-acute care providers is essential for any ACO to succeed. With access to over 14,000 post-acute care providers with approximately 58,000 sites of care, ACOs will have the opportunity to partner with  MHA's national network of  Long Term Care (LTC) pharmacies, Home Infusion and Specialty pharmacies, HME and Respiratory providers, and Long Term Care facilities including skilled nursing, assisted living and rehabilitation facilities.

Michael J. Sicilian, MHA President commented, "We have been in active dialogue with both hospital and physician based ACOs around the country and the feedback regarding our model has been well received. What has been clearly communicated is that each ACO will have its own unique needs and strategies. It is not a "one size fits all" model.   To that end, the MHA ACO Network has been identified as the type of innovation that will be necessary to successfully manage large post-acute care patient populations. With MHA's experience managing the nation's largest LTC Pharmacy Network serving the Medicare Part D patient population, we saw the MHA ACO Network as a natural extension into the emerging ACO marketplace. By providing a single point of contracting for both the ACO and post-acute care providers, the MHA ACO Network streamlines the administrative burden while focusing on providing the technology, data analytics, and clinical reporting necessary to manage large patient populations."

Michelle Templin, Vice President of  MHA Strategic Business Development added, "The emerging ACO model requires sophisticated, scalable technology, provider connectivity and critical resources in order for ACOs and networks of post-acute care providers  to meet the triple aim of better patient care, better population health and lower healthcare expenditures. MHA's network management experience, ongoing investment and leadership position in the alternate site market will best position post-acute providers to succeed in this emerging patient care model."

Additional information on the MHA ACO Network for both post-acute providers and Accountable Care Organizations is available by contacting Michelle Templin, Vice President of Strategic Business Development at 1-855-303-3430 or aconetwork@mhainc.com.
