Healthcare Management Solutions - CARD -


Healthcare Management Solutions, Inc. offers a wide range of services including our newest service - Healthcare Management Solutions Turnaround Team:

Our Team includes physicians, stategists, operators, finance experts, actuaries, and economists.  We work together through these tough, demanding turnarounds to get to a high performing, focused organization that is producing the necessary results.  Healthcare Management Solutions' particular focus is on heathcare organizations that have taken on managed care risk or are seeking to take on risk - health plans, ACOs, Clinically Integrated Networks, Medical Groups, and health systems that are engaged in risk assumption through those types of entities. 


We offer creative, results-driven, back-end arrangements where the majority of the fees are paid as results are delivered through execution on operational improvements.  Our team is focused on value-based organizations and our turnaround work is structured on the same basis - payment for value.

So, who's on the HMS Turnaround Team?
