SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Sept. 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matrix Medical Network® (Matrix), the leading provider of in-home health assessments, has completed its one millionth health assessment since establishing its flagship program in 2006. This important milestone is a testament to the value and importance that in-home health services have on improving quality of care.
Matrix pioneered the use of an employed Nurse Practitioner network to bring care to health plan members where it's needed most—in the home. By delivering care in a comfortable and relaxed home setting, Matrix Nurse Practitioners are able to engage, evaluate and educate members more effectively. Matrix partners with health plans to provide comprehensive in-home health assessments and care services for health plan members across the country. Beyond the health assessment, Matrix helps connect members to care, one home visit at a time, by coordinating a broad range of care needs with Primary Care Providers, health plans and community resources.
"This is a very special milestone for us, as it reflects the incredible reach and impact Matrix has had on care for one million health plan members," said Chief Executive Officer Randy Dobbs. "We provide an important service in healthcare. By connecting with people in their homes, we identify additional care needs and empower members with the knowledge and resources needed to manage their health today and into the future."
Matrix Chief Medical Officer Zach Gerbarg, MD, CPC, has witnessed firsthand the impact that these assessments have on the lives of members. "Our Nurse Practitioners are the eyes and ears for understanding a member's health at home. They pay attention to details, identify health risks, educate the member, and help implement proven preventive care measures. These skilled team members are even able to motivate many individuals to make positive changes that will dramatically improve how they manage their health over time."
