KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. (KHS) was formed by parent-company KaMMCO (Kansas Medical Mutual Insurance Company), in June 2014. KaMMCO, while achieving the 25 year milestone of providing insurance and risk management services as well as unrelenting advocacy for the healthcare professionals in Kansas, believed it must evolve in order to face the many challenges and opportunities presented by today’s complex healthcare delivery system and finance models. As part of this far-reaching vision, the KaMMCO Board of Directors empowered staff to proceed with the formation of two new subsidiary companies; KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. and KaMMCO Casualty, Inc. The new business units will expand KaMMCO’s current business profile by offering expertise to parties interested in health information exchange network (HIN) infrastructure development and data analytics services as well as lines of insurance beyond medical professional liability insurance.
KHS partners with healthcare providers, integrated delivery networks, independent practice associations, accountable care organizations, health plans, and others who face the challenges of the new healthcare marketplace and value-based payment structures. The HIN and data analytics division is led by Senior Vice President, Laura McCrary, Ed.D. Dr. McCrary also serves as Executive Director of the Kansas Health Information Network (KHIN). KHIN is renowned as one of the largest, most successful HIEs in the country.
KHS is an organization with a board comprised of physician and hospital leaders. This provider-led approach positions KHS to serve as a guiding influence for organizations who seek a partner in the planning and building of the infrastructure necessary for a sustainable HIN. The healthcare interoperability partner also offers analytic reporting services required for clinical integration, care coordination, quality reporting, and value-based payment structures.
KaMMCO’s reputation as a financially secure, operationally sound, relentless advocate affords the organization the ability to reinvest in the healthcare industry in a manner which benefits both its members and the patients they serve. The KaMMCO business and reinvestment model, when woven together with the expertise, experience, and success of KHIN, creates a unique opportunity for KHS to partner in healthcare transformation, interoperability, and the use of patient data to facilitate research and improve patient outcomes across the nation.
KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. partners with healthcare providers and organizations to build the necessary infrastructure to establish a sustainable health information exchange, to effectively employ data analytics in pursuit of the goals defined by the Triple Aim of health care, and to provide innovative risk management products and services.
KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. will be an integral part of the transformation of healthcare with a reputation as an expert in the areas of healthcare interoperability, healthcare data analytics, and risk mitigation through insurance products and services.
