Steadman Group Consultants excel at applying their specialized knowledge and experience to help solve problems in such areas as:

Policy and operations

  • Facilitated health plan attribution model development and managed internal, external and system implementation

Regulatory compliance and guidances

We review, analyze, and advise clients about healthcare-related federal and state statutes, as well as provide guidance in areas including the Affordable Care Act, HIPAA, HITECH, and Medicaid. Our experts have helped organizations with Medicaid managed care readiness reviews, audit preparation, corrective action plans, regulatory reporting and data analysis, contract deliverables, market expansion, and new market implementation.

Efficient information dissemination & interoperability

We help clients develop and implement processes to share healthcare information securely and efficiently.

Another supported using HIE for exchanging provider attribution data with a health plan.

  • Managed project to connect care management tool with alerts from local health information exchange
  • Managed project to integrate data from electronic health records, health plan claims data, and health information exchange to support proactive panel management, risk stratification, and patient engagement

We work with our clients implementing population health strategies for health plans, hospitals and clinical practices to optimize quality of care and reimbursement. Our experts include clinicians and operations specialists to ensure your program aligns with quality outcome goals.

  • Developed and managed implementation of a care management program with a population health focus for a plan with a predominantly Medicaid and Medicare population. Programs included transitions of care, complex care management and disease/condition management
  • Developed an administrative query tool to identify children with special health care needs for a health plan’s performance improvement project

Program development

We provide organizational expertise, support successful grant development and implementation, conduct research to assess community needs, and build programs that benefit community members through addressing health and/or social determinants of health.

  • Supported accountable health communities deployment
  • Medicaid global payment model: served as an integral partner with health plan from initial proposal development through implementation, including planning, documentation, internal and external communications, and system changes

What people say

We really appreciated both JK and Shelley on this project. It wouldn’t have been possible without their talents. We are incredibly excited to be managing partners on the project.

Our investment in the Steadman Group has paid for itself many times over. They have guided us through the bid/proposal process on several new-business awards, and then led us through the successful implementation of those programs. They have shown us how to improve operations and create efficiencies which have lowered operating expenses. They’re an instant margin-booster.

The Steadman Group helps us refine our tactics, which frees up our leaders to focus on advancing our mission. We would not and could not function as well without their support.
