White Plains, NY / PRWeb / February 19, 2015 – AliCare Medical Management (AMM) (www.alicaremed.com), a leading provider of high-quality, clinically-based care management programs and a member of the Amalgamated Family of Companies, is marking 2015 as its 25th anniversary year. The company, which is recognized for promoting optimum health outcomes while containing health care costs and effectively advocating for its patients, has been on a path of steady growth and recognition since its inception in 1990. Over the past two and half decades, AMM has grown to provide a comprehensive suite of care management solutions concurrent with receiving significant accreditations and honors.
According to David J. Walsh, President and CEO, Amalgamated Family of Companies, “AMM is a member company of which our entire organization is extremely proud. Not only has the firm lived up to its mission of providing excellent care management programs and services, it has done so while adhering to the highest standards of service. We are anticipating nothing short of another successful 25 years from AMM.”
A testament to its ongoing dedication to the best possible care quality, AMM holds four accreditations from URAC for Health Utilization Management, Case Management, Health Call Center and Independent Review. “URAC sets the industry standard for quality in the health care arena, so we are extremely proud to hold four accreditations for our programs,” O’Brien notes. “The fact that we have met URAC’s quality standards for two decades reflects our undying commitment to providing top-tier services to our clients.”
O’Brien also cited another important distinction that AMM received last year. “Last year also marked our receipt of two prestigious Case in Point Platinum Awards. These awards were given to us by Dorland Health at its 5th Annual Care Coordination Summit in May 2014. We received one Platinum Award for our 24/7 Nurse HelpLine, and Barbara Schaeffer, our Director of Case Management, received a Platinum Award for Leader in the individual professional category.” These awards were not the first Platinum Awards received by AMM. In 2013, the company’s Diabetic Management Program was honored with a Case in Point Platinum Award.
In addition to care management, utilization management, independent physician review and Nurse HelpLine, AMM offers disease management, hospital readmission management, maternity management, Health Information service, wellness health coaching, medical claims review and hospital bill auditing. These robust solutions, combined with its high caliber team of experienced health care professionals, have made AMM the “go to” resource for healthcare providers and plan sponsors including Taft-Hartley multi-employer unions and diverse businesses.
