Quote Attributable to Melanie Matthews, HIN Executive VP and COO:

"In an era of value-based reimbursement in which organizations balance ownership of greater financial risk with the chance to share in a greater portion of savings, embedded care coordinators can help to monitor and reduce health risks in vulnerable populations via face-to-face and telephonic touch points, while elevating delivery of evidence-based medicine."
