Medical Professional Mutual Insurance Company, a Coverys company, announced today that it has executed a security purchase agreement with Archway Health Advisors (Archway) of Brookline, Massachusetts, and now holds an ownership position in Archway. The investment from Coverys provides Archway with additional resources to grow and expand its platform while offering valuable insights to Coverys on solutions to assist providers to successfully navigate the complexities of payment reform, financial risk management, and care improvement.
Archway provides a variety of advisory services and technology tools to help providers with a diverse range of reimbursement opportunities including those involving Medicare, Medicaid, private payers, and workers’ compensation programs. Through sophisticated analytics, Archway uses its experience to evaluate claims and clinical data to identify new opportunities to improve care and reduce costs. It has significant experience in designing and implementing bundled payment and other care and risk management programs and can share risk with clients by providing risk financing and reinsurance functions to protect healthcare providers against
downside losses. Archway offers its services to the full care continuum including specialty physicians of all types, ACO’s hospitals and health systems, as well as skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies and continuing care retirement communities.
“We view the services Archway provides as critical to the success of providers in the era of healthcare reform and value-based medicine,” said Gregg L. Hanson, CEO and president of Coverys. “We believe the investment Coverys has made in Archway supports our goal to influence better outcomes for patients in terms of quality, and for healthcare providers, so they remain profitable and can continue to serve their communities.”
