Developing a Managed Service Organization for an Intellectual/Developmental Disability Services Provider Association

Members of an intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) providers association engaged AHP to help form a management service organization (MSO) in response to imminent changes in the regulatory and business environment driven by the Affordable Care Act. AHP conducted a readiness assessment and then developed an implementation plan and roadmap to guide the group of providers toward establishing the MSO to re-engineer care delivery systems and adopt integrated service solutions and new technology. The comprehensive roadmap outlined the functional processes to put in place and a set of recommendations and procedures to help launch the MSO for the providers.

Increasing Financial Stability and Productivity for an Intellectual/Developmental Disability Service Provider

AHP helped to assess and improve key business operations for The Resource Center, a provider of intellectual/developmental disability, primary care, dental, and mental health services in New York State that was facing financial challenges under health care reform. Over a two-year period, AHP conducted a claims analysis and a productivity study, as follows:

  • The analysis identified the causes of financial losses, gaps in the revenue management process, and opportunities for improved pricing strategies and contract negotiation processes.
  • The productivity study analyzed the clinical workflow and its impact on revenue models, revealing both the need to improve productivity and to increase patients to the practice. AHP’s recommendations from all phases of work were quickly implemented by the client. Today operations are more efficient, productive, and profitable.
