In addition to his board roles, Heaney is a frequently invited speaker to industry and Medicaid policy conferences. Heaney has testified before Congress on behalf of home bound veterans and served on several state and local government Medicaid related task groups and advisory boards.
"We are truly enthused about Mark Heaney joining our board and bolstering our healthcare domain expertise," said Tracy K. Price, CEO and Chairman of QMerit. "We believe the unique combination of Mark's industry leading expertise in point of service caregiving coupled with the QMerit platform will create a step level change in the industry."
Heaney commented, "I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to spend my entire career in the provision of care at home to a deserving population. I am honored to join the Board at QMerit where, with our technology, we help provider organizations by bringing science and precision to the art of caregiver selection."
QMerit has developed the first cloud-based technology platform with a Smart-Market scheduling engine that helps companies in the home health care and technical services markets deliver the most qualified and cost-effective resources to projects and customers every time. Caregivers can now be matched to patients based on their unique requirements or specific disease state to drive consistently better medical outcomes. And, the most talented, best performing labor resources receive priority for the most desirable tasks through the QMerit meritocracy based performance contribution index. The platform also provides the right incentives for workers to always perform well and advance their service careers.
This first of its kind technology solution was built over the past three years within the technical services division of its Fortune 500 parent company. QMerit was spun out as a newco in Q4 of 2015 and formally launched as a commercial venture in January of 2016. Please visit us at http://qmerit.com.
