Philadelphia, PA, April 18, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- XtraGlobex, Inc. President Fady Sahhar is joined by Joan W. Martin (Wojdak Government Relations), Alissa Eden Halperin (Halperin Butera), and Terri Bowes (Pro Care Consulting) in a new Managed Care Readiness Project for home and community-based services (HCBS) providers to the intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) population. All renowned subject matter experts in the HCBS field, they bring a data-driven skillset and over a century of combined experience interacting with state and national policy makers, advancing and shaping independent and long term living programs as well as successful business ventures.
“I’m very pleased to be working with such exceptional thought leaders, all of us heavily involved in the transition to Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) locally and nationally,” Sahhar said. “The I/DD ecosystem is on the brink of the same kinds of disruptions. We can help organizations to see how prepared they are for the coming sea change with a fixed-cost, compact on-site program that educates, assesses and illuminates.”
The XtraGlobex team begins with an intensive overview of the managed care landscape for all staff, then gauges every element of an agency’s capacity including programs, systems, human capital, financial resources, quality, and strategic direction while tapping into proprietary databases from Pennsylvania and across the country. This will evaluate specific strengths, needs and opportunities in this dynamic environment. The team’s final report is a laser-focused illustration of the organization’s readiness to contract with managed care plans and deliver services in a managed care environment. The entire process is completed within a concise 6 to 8 weeks.
“The project is time-limited and designed to zero in on a given organization without camping out for weeks on end,” Sahhar said. “For a fixed cost, we teach the staff about the changes to come, evaluate the organization top to bottom, and leave it with a clear-cut image of its preparedness to operate under any managed care model, a solid foundation for long-term planning, implementation and sustainable results.”
Fady Sahhar, PhD. (Philadelphia/Marlton, NJ) has successfully steered numerous companies and organizations through the changes in philosophy and practice that Managed Long Term Services and Supports (MLTSS) has brought to service delivery for seniors and others living with a disability.
Joan W. Martin, Wojdak Government Relations (Harrisburg/Philadelphia) consults for human service organizations on strategic planning, organizational change, budget analysis and advocacy, responds to regulatory issues, provides technical assistance on Medicaid rates, and preparing for MLTSS. She is a registered PA lobbyist.
Alissa Eden Halperin, JD at Halperin Butera, (Phoenixville, PA) is sole consultant in the development and drafting of CMS’ “Guidance to States using 1115 Demonstrations or 1915(b) Waivers for MLTSS Programs,” and in developing and implementing its Financial Alignment Initiative (or “Duals Demo”).
Terri Bowes, RN, owner and CEO of Pro Care Consulting, (Greater Nashville Area, TN) brings deep expertise in planning, implementing and overseeing all aspects of MLTSS integrated into managed care organizations across NY, Tennessee, NJ, New Mexico, Delaware, and Florida.
“Our team will customize every analysis and interaction to provide each agency with a clear understanding of the managed care and Pennsylvania landscape, in order to forge strategies and initiatives to gain an Exceptional and Sustainable Competitive Advantage,” said Sahhar.
