Health Management Associates, Community Care of North Carolina Form Strategic Partnership

Today, Health Management Associates (HMA) and Community Care of North Carolina, Inc. (CCNC) announced the formation of a strategic partnership that will leverage the complementary skills and expertise of both organizations to offer providers and payers innovative solutions for the challenges of today’s healthcare landscape.

HMA works with states, health plans, and providers across the country to develop more effective ways to deliver and pay for the healthcare of vulnerable populations. That work includes a breadth of experience developing and implementing strategies for new organizational structures to transform practices and establish clinically integrated systems (including behavioral health integration), creating mutually beneficial connections between delivery systems and managed care organizations, and operationalizing strategies for multiple provider network development.

“For over three decades, HMA has been committed to helping our clients make publicly funded healthcare work better,” said Jay Rosen, founder and President of HMA. “CCNC has been living that mission, pioneering innovative new ways to deliver care. We are thrilled to be working together to make a difference for vulnerable populations and communities.”

CCNC has extensive experience with the organization and support of high-performing primary care and community-based, physician-led collaborations. The organization has specific expertise developing actionable data analytics, care management of populations with complex needs, integration of pharmacy services into the care team, and programs designed to meet the needs of special populations, such as pregnant women and children in foster care.

“CCNC and HMA bring complementary skills to the table, and we look forward to working with payers and providers to find new and better ways to improve quality, reduce costs and provide greater value,” said Allen Dobson, Jr., MD, President and CEO of CCNC.

To further solidify this new affiliation, in October HMA will open its 21st office in Raleigh, N.C. It will be led by Managing Principal Roxane Townsend, MD.

HMA is an independent, national research and consulting firm specializing in publicly funded healthcare including policy, programs, and reform. HMA provides leadership, experience, and technical expertise to government agencies, public and private providers, health systems, health plans, institutional investors, foundations, and associations.
