Posted on 11.06.12
PARSIPPANY, NJ,– One Call Medical, Inc. (OCM) today announced that it has acquired Harbor Health Systems, a leading provider of network effectiveness tools.
Don Duford, Chief Executive Officer of One Call Medical, commented on the acquisition: “One Call Medical has developed a broad portfolio of best in class specialty networks serving workers’ compensation claims organizations. A critical element of being “best in class” is the ability to match injured workers with the best provider for their particular needs. Today, with the addition of Harbor Health Systems, we are adding a unique set of competencies that will make our networks stronger and integrate them more effectively with primary care providers. Harbor’s scoring technology identifies the best providers in different medical and specialty areas to deliver proven value, benefits, and savings. Our goal is to integrate the ability to measure provider performance throughout our service lines, thereby enhancing our impact on costs and outcomes throughout the claims lifecycle.”
“At Harbor Health, we recognized the inherent challenge in identifying and selecting the highest quality providers who successfully expedite treatment, recovery, and return to work for injured employees,” said Greg Moore, Co-founder and President of Harbor Health Systems. “So, we developed our technology to find and measure these high performers. Our client results go beyond what’s achievable through network utilization alone, as our quality measures actually improve the network itself. As part of One Call Medical, we’ll be able to apply our technology across a broader array of provider services, raising the bar on quality, costs, and outcomes to new heights.”
