First phase lays foundation for improving collaboration and information sharing among healthcare claims, medical management and medical staff professionals
PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- AllMed Healthcare Management announced the phase one launch of a new Website that will expand the company's medical review services and increase its role in providing expert medical information, knowledge sharing and collaboration on the web.
"Our clients include some of the busiest people on the planet: claims & medical management professionals and hospital medical staff," said Andrew G. Rowe, CEO. "They need access to constantly changing information and tools that can help them do their jobs more quickly and efficiently."
In annual surveys conducted over the past couple of years, both healthcare payer and hospital clients have noted they highly value the clinical and educational resources on allmedmd.com, and asked the company to expand that content and make it easier to find.
"Expert clinical information, physician access and customer service have always separated us from other independent review organizations," Rowe said. "By providing more clinical information and knowledge that's easier to access, we're continuing to increase our value to our clients and differentiate ourselves from our competitors."

"What we're doing is repositioning the company as a value-added provider of expert medical information and knowledge sharing; not just independent medical reviews."
