Today, Jay Rosen, founder and president of Health Management Associates (HMA), announced the acquisition of California healthcare consulting firm Care Integration Partners (CIP).
Formerly known as Jen Clancy Consulting, CIP specializes in advancing the integration of behavioral health and primary care by working directly with health plans.
“For over a decade HMA has been helping clients to integrate behavioral health and primary care, and transform how practices function,” said Rosen. “CIP’s unique approach nicely complements our experience and expertise in these areas.”
CIP’s work has focused on achieving the Quadruple Aim of better population health outcomes, improved experience for patients, improved experience for healthcare teams, and reduced healthcare costs for individuals with complex behavioral health and medical conditions. HMA has worked closely with CIP and client Inland Empire Health Plan for over two years with impressive preliminary results.
“When it comes to helping clients develop and implement innovations to integrate behavioral health and primary care, HMA leads the way,” said Jennifer Clancy, CIP founder. “I know their experts will continue producing cutting edge practice transformation work and advance efforts to achieve the Quadruple Aim as CIP has worked so diligently to do.”
In addition to further broadening HMA’s nationally recognized care integration and practice transformation expertise, the acquisition of CIP also expands the firm’s reach along the West Coast, where it has five offices, three in California.
Founded in 1985, HMA is an independent, national research and consulting firm specializing in publicly funded healthcare reform, policy, programs, and financing. Clients include government, public and private providers, health systems, health plans, institutional investors, foundations and associations. With 21 offices and nearly 200 multidisciplinary consultants coast to coast, HMA’s expertise, services, and team is always within client reach.
