SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matrix Medical Network, the national leader in providing in-home prospective health assessment services for Medicare Advantage (MA) plan members, announced today that it has completed more than 225,000 health assessments to-date this year, exceeding the company's record number of assessments completed in 2012 and nearly doubling the number of assessments completed in 2011. By the end of 2013, the company is on track to complete more than 335,000 assessments, making it another record-breaking year for Matrix.
The company achieves its strong performance and year-after-year growth by continuing to invest in the refinement of operational processes and hiring additional nurse practitioners (NPs). Matrix pioneered the use of a national network of highly-trained employee NPs to conduct in-person prospective assessments in MA members' homes and nursing facilities. The Matrix assessment helps identify and address unmet medical and social service needs and improves care management for MA plan members.
"Every day our team of NPs is positively impacting MA member lives through our assessments," said Matrix Chief Medical Officer, Zachary Gerbarg, MD, CPC. "Not only do our NPs complete a very thorough medical assessment, but they listen to people's concerns, provide health and home-environment safety counseling, and share vitally important health information with the members, members' physicians, and MA plan case management teams."
