Maine Community Health Options (MCHO) has implemented the Essette Medical Management Software Suite to support their ongoing focus on health outcomes improvement. Essette’s comprehensive Care Management platform will also enhance MCHO’s continued emphasis on excellence in service.

Maine Community Health Options is a Consumer Oriented and Operated Plan (CO-OP), a non-profit health insurer that is Member-led and focused on reducing the total costs of care. MCHO leveraged Essette’s easily configurable tools and evidence-based care plans to get the system up and running in time for the 2015 plan year. As MCHO’s Membership continues to grow, MCHO will benefit from Essette’s highly customizable applications which support MCHO’s mission of offering individuals and small businesses more affordable, consumer-friendly, and high quality health insurance options.

“Our partnership with Essette signals the strength of MCHO’s care management focus and support for the provider-patient relationship which is paramount to optimal health outcomes,” said Kevin Lewis, chief executive officer at MCHO. “The additional visibility and process supports that come from Essette’s tools will further enrich the care management resources that MCHO brings to our Members and our provider network.”

“Essette is proud to partner with MCHO’s consumer-directed CO-OP, and shares their values of providing cost-effective care and building healthy communities by driving improved health outcomes,” said Marc Lawrence, SVP of Business Development at Essette.
