Health Associates of Western Pennsylvania (HAWP)
Formerly a hospital-owned group, HAWP wanted to make a successful transition back to independent practice. The six-doctor group was losing large amounts of money and the hospital had decided to close the doors of three of the private practices. HAWP split from the hospital system in 2004 and relied on MED3OOO to help them set up a new practice that would turn out to be a profitable success.

MED3OOO has partnered with PriMed, LLC, providing full practice management and revenue cycle management services, as well as ASP technology, since the practice was founded in 1996. We have helped the group grow from a 35-physician primary care practice to a multi-specialty practice with 55 physicians and 13 mid-level providers.
One of the practices within PriMed is managed by Dr. DoRosario, a founding member of PriMed and its current Medical Director. Dr. DoRosario runs a busy, efficient, well-managed practice. His office, consisting of five physicians and four auxiliary providers, averages over 145 patient encounters every day. The nurses and administrative staff are constantly "on the go" to keep up with the busy clinical schedule. With his practice running at capacity, Dr. DoRosario was not looking to increase the number of patients seen. He was, however, looking to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the staff in handling certain clinical tasks. In particular, he saw an opportunity to reduce the considerable time spent handling prescription drug refills. Click here to read the case study:

SeaView IPA (SVIPA) in Ventura County, CA, is a group of local independent physicians who wanted to have a voice in the delivery of managed care. As an IPA, the network contracts with health plans and providers to deliver health care to its enrollees. The physicians on the IPA’s Board of Directors have been committed to providing quality patient care combined with cost effective health care management. They were looking for a highly professional IPA management company to ensure administrative efficiency and effectiveness, while helping them improve clinical, operational, and financial outcomes with technology and improvement resources. SeaView turned to MED3OOO to take over the management operations of the IPA. MED3OOO's expertise in management and technology has given the IPA the opportunity to operate more efficiently, achieving high patient satisfaction and quality and financial outcomes.

Olmsted Medical Center
Olmsted Medical Center (OMC) is an integrated, not-for-profit, medical services organization with one multi-specialty clinic, 10 primary care clinics, and a 70-bed community hospital operating in southeastern Minnesota with nearly 1,000 employees, handling 450,000 patients per year. OMC with 100 percent clinical staff utilization at the initial rollout revealed a dramatic 95 percent reduction in daily chart pulls, reduced by 60+ percent, and same-day claims processes have contributed to a 20 percent reduction in accounts receivable, and nursing staff experienced a 60+ percent reduction in time spent on non-clinician support activities. Nurses now have more time for “nursing,” rather than attending to paper/clerical work. Their job satisfaction has increased because they can help patients and answer their questions on the first call, rather than playing phone tag to call patients with answers. This has resulted in increased patient satisfaction and enhanced patient flow. With the InteGreat's EHR in place, OMC was able to launch a nurse call line without increasing the overall number of nursing staff by reassigning 2.5 full-time nurses and one clerk. This service allows patients to call nurses directly for advice, to discuss symptoms, renew prescriptions, and more. The InteGreat EHR provides nurses with immediate access to patient records.
