MDS staff has extensive experience in the development and management of integrated care networks. Our team consults on the strategy for creation and growth, as well as provide guidance and execution for successful implementation and ongoing operations. The key to success for any risk-bearing or accountable care organization is the rapid development of staff and stakeholder skills and capabilities. Each organization has unique criteria that most often requires a customized solution in order to ensure success under the rapidly changing healthcare reform landscape. These skills and capabilities can also be applied to other innovative reimbursement models or for greater engagement directly with employer groups for management of healthcare outcomes, costs and experiences.
