Healthcare Management Solutions, Inc.:
working with you to develop innovative strategies to meet your competition head-on

Healthcare Management Solutions is a real-world, results-oriented, managed care consulting firm that brings providers and payers together to build something better. Payers and providers are not natural allies, but are interdependent in most markets. We build solutions that avoid the screaming matches, blistering advertisements, and patient disruption that come with managed care combat. We can play that way too, if necessary. But a more lasting and stable solution is to find ways for payers and providers to collaborate without either party taking a beating.


On this website, you'll find information about the many ways in which we can help you via the extensive range of services that we offer.  Included are links to information about some of our more recent projects and clients for whom we've provided assistance.  There is information on this website about some of our more recent speaking engagements, and we've also included an archive of some of our healthcare articles and other publications, which will help to inform you about our approach to dealing with various industry issues.   We've also added a Media page, where you'll find excerpted and full videos and other media formats from some of our more recent media, webinar, and conference interactions.  And finally,  we're excited to share with you information on our own "think tank" inspired events:  CLIFF'S CONFAB - a Raucous Caucus ™.


As you tour our website, take note of our experience, and the solutions that we have built addressing problems in various markets around the country. Know that we are focused on delivering solutions that lead to positive results, and that change the dialog between providers and payers. As an example, we ask payers "what clinical areas are problematic and how can we providers address those needs?" And we ask providers "what hassles can we eliminate in the administrative process to keep physicians and hospitals focused on patient care and outstanding outcomes?"


We can help you to help your providers manage managed care. Feel free to call us (904) 874-6134, or to get in touch via the "Contact Us" link found at the bottom of each of this website's pages, with any questions you may have about any aspect of our services, and to find out specifically how we can help you.  Let’s go build something great!
