Scott’s addition to our team comes at a time of great opportunity for health plans and the commercial risk-adjustment markets.
Irving, TX (PRWEB) March 18, 2016
EMSI Health, a national provider of health assessment, risk adjustment, Five Star Quality Rating, chart retrieval and HCC coding services, announces the addition of Scott Weiner to its management team as senior vice president, Analytics and Strategy. Weiner will be focused on expanding the company’s HEDIS, Medicare Stars, Medicaid Risk Adjustment and data analytics offerings to better meet the needs of health plans.
“Scott’s addition to our team comes at a time of great opportunity for health plans and the commercial risk-adjustment markets,” commented Doug Merriman, executive vice president of Operations for EMSI Health. “His extensive background in risk adjustment will benefit our current clients greatly and he will play a key role in our plan to grow EMSI Health’s presence in the Medicare Advantage and commercial risk adjustment markets at a rapid pace.”
In addition to expanding service capabilities, Weiner will work closely with clients in a consultative role to help them address Affordable Care Act and Medicare Advantage challenges. He has direct experience in guiding health plans in resolving data submission issues and adapting to changes to the HCC model, including the impact of the partial vs. full dual payments and the increased reliance on Encounter Data Submissions as the basis for payments.
“I am excited to join an organization that pioneered the development and implementation of data analytics and warehousing solutions specifically for health plans and is a leader in the risk-adjustment space,” commented Weiner. “EMSI Health provides great tools to the market, including their StratusIQ client portal and Healthy House Calls in-home assessments, which now allows plan members to schedule health assessments at their convenience. One of my goals in joining the team is to expand this type of service-delivery innovation to other areas of the organization and to build on EMSI Health’s strong reputation as a true partner to health plans and other healthcare organizations.”
Weiner has extensive executive-level and health-plan consulting experience, having held managed care, risk adjustment and data analytics positions for more than 20 years. Immediately prior to joining EMSI Health, he served as president/founder of Quadralytics, a company focused on providing healthcare consulting, analytics and software. He is an established expert witness and speaker on Medicare risk adjustment, Medicare Stars and finance analysis.
Weiner holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Seattle University and a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Central Washington University. He will be based in EMSI’s headquarters in Irving, Texas and can be reached at sweiner(at)emsinet(dot)com.
