Rochester, Mich.—December 3, 2012– MedNetOne Health Solutions (MNOHS), a Rochester-based full service health solutions provider offering clinical, technology and programming support services to its 1,000 plus primary and specialty care private practice physicians and behavior health specialist members, announces that William Porter, RN, has been named Director of Clinical Services.

Mr. Porter joined MNOHS in 2012 as a Hybrid Care Manager, providing coordinated care, nursing services and administrative oversight to numerous member practices.

According to MNOHS CEO Ewa Matuszewski, this position leverages Mr. Porter’s clinical and coordinated care expertise in the patient centered medical home (PCMH) team approach model and the transitions of care process.

“Changes resulting from the PCMH movement and health reform, including new reimbursement models and structural alignments, are coming at an unprecedented pace,” Matuszewski says. “Bill has the capacity to generate and apply new clinical, technology and programming support services to help our network members adapt to national healthcare reform as well as new programs offered through the State of Michigan,” she said. “Our organization looks forward to his continued efforts to promote whole person care.”

Immediately prior to joining MedNetOne Health Solutions, Mr. Porter was a site review consultant for Inovalon (formerly MedAssurant), a national healthcare data analytics solution provider. He also served as a patient care nurse and nurse technician at Providence Hospital and Medical Center. Prior to entering the nursing field, Mr. Porter was a skilled tradesperson in the auto industry. He is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.

Mr. Porter graduated magna cum laude from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Medical Network One Announces Corporate Name Change to MedNetOne Health Solutions to Reflect Rapidly Expanding Services of Traditional Physician Groups

Rochester, Mich.—November 26, 2012–– Medical Network One, a Rochester-based healthcare management organization with a 31-year history serving the infrastructure and clinical support needs of primary and specialty care private practice physicians, announces a corporate name change to MedNetOne Health Solutions effectively immediately. The announcement was made by MedNetOne Health Solutions CEO Ewa Matuszewski.

Originally formed to provide third party payor contract negotiations, administrative support and utilization review services, MedNetOne Health Solutions (MNOHS) has evolved in recent years to a full service health solutions provider, bringing new clinical, technology and programming support services to its 1,00 plus members to ease movement into the patient centered medical home model and meet national health reform mandates.

“The MedNetOne Health Solutions name better reflects the broad array of services we offer independent physician practices and behavioral health professionals who are focused on successfully transitioning to fully integrated, population-based, patient-centric practices,”
said Matuszewski. “Changes resulting from the PCMH movement and health reform, including new reimbursement models and structural alignments like ACOs and Organized Systems of Care, are coming at an unprecedented pace and require independent physicians and physician organizations to respond accordingly to remain viable.

“Despite aggressive actions by hospitals and health systems to purchase private primary care and specialty practices, there remains a core group of physicians who are strongly committed to remaining independent. That is MNOHS’ market and our services are built around them and behavioral health professionals who complement their services.”

Earlier this year, MedNetOne Health Solutions became the first physician-based organization in Michigan to actively pursue Ph.D. psychologists as members.

“National healthcare reform and new programs offered through the state of Michigan are emphasizing the incorporation of behavioral health services into primary care. We want behavioral health specialists to join us in our efforts to promote whole person care,” said Matuszewski.
