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

"The impact of care coordination of high-risk patients on cost and utilization has been frequently documented. But Massachusetts General Hospital's inclusion of rising-risk patients in its approach is helping to head off adverse health events and reduce the high-risk population, which is where the lion's share of healthcare spend occurs."
