3/2/2015
 
The Kansas Medical Mutual Insurance Company (KaMMCO) Board of Directors has announced the formation of two new subsidiary companies. The new business units, KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. and KaMMCO Casualty Company, Inc., will expand KaMMCO’s business profile by offering new health information exchange (HIE) services and lines of insurance beyond the medical professional liability insurance products it has traditionally offered.

KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. partners with health care 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 HIE 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.

KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. is an organization with a board comprised of physician and hospital leaders. This provider-led approach, combined with the expertise and experience of Dr. McCrary and her staff, positions KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. to serve as a guiding influence for organizations who seek a partner in the planning and building of the infrastructure necessary for a sustainable HIE. The healthcare interoperability partner also offers analytic reporting services required for clinical integration, care coordination, quality reporting, and value-based payment structures.

The KaMMCO business and reinvestment model, when woven together with the expertise, experience, and success of KHIN, creates a unique opportunity for KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. to partner in healthcare transformation, interoperability, and the use of patient data to facilitate research and improve patient outcomes across the nation.
 
KaMMCO Casualty, Inc. has been formed and is awaiting final approval from the Kansas Insurance Commissioner for its Certificate of Authority to do business.

KaMMCO is a member-directed medical professional liability insurance company providing protection for physicians and other health care professionals, medical groups, hospitals, and professional associations since 1989. KaMMCO is endorsed by the Kansas Medical Society and the Kansas Hospital Association.
