QUOTES FROM CLIENTS

“Five years ago we began to integrate care for our Medicaid population. Mark helped us plan and deploy our integration strategy including a comprehensive patient screening program, new processes for patient triage to embedded Behavioral Health Clinicians and Community Health Workers, and Integrated Care meetings with Behavioral Health and Community Supports providers. He helped us navigate a new Value-Based Purchasing financing model, launch a region-wide clinical quality reporting program, and deploy technology to support multi-organizational shared care planning.” – Vice President of Population Health at Major Hospital System
