TAMPA, Fla., April 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Toney HealthCare Consulting (THCC), a full spectrum, clinically-oriented consultancy, today announced significant expansion of services and explosive 40% year over year growth in serving health plans who become shorthanded in critical business, clinical leadership and management functions.
Founded in 2008, THCC has grown to over 140 consultants with expertise across the spectrum of health plan functions. Seasoned health plan executives and operators serve in interim roles including:
- Chief Medical Officer and medical director
- Quality Improvement and Compliance specialists
- Care management nurse executives
- CEO, CFO and other C-suite roles
In addition, THCC now supports health plans serving Commercial, Medicaid, Medicare and dual-eligible populations from coast to coast.
"Toney HealthCare provides exceptional service and expertise," said Kathy Ross, Chief Health and Experience Officer at GEHA, the second largest national health plan serving civilian federal employees, retirees and their families. "With a large national member population, it is paramount we maintain operational continuity at all times. When we recently had an extended need for a national Utilization Management medical director, Toney HealthCare met the need for clinical expertise in a creative, professional manner."
In the past year, THCC engagements have spanned as short as one month to over nine months, enabling health plans to maintain continuity while they recruit for permanent placements. Responsibilities have included: overseeing entire care management operations, providing utilization review services and medical director leadership, improving STAR and HEDIS measures, driving compliance with federal and state regulations, and achieving NCQA accreditation.
"Our team of consultant professionals has extraordinary experience and a deep passion to serve, all to the benefit of our health plan customers and, ultimately, the plans' members," said Sam Toney, M.D., CEO of Toney Healthcare. "We understand the challenges that many health plans experience during times of leadership turnover as well as the need for rapid responses to market/enterprise changes. We are thankful to our customers who have recognized this and contributed to our growth over the last year."
