SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As of today, a strategic partnership between MMM Holdings, LLC and Metro-Pavía Health System comes into effect. Executives from both companies agreed to optimize the services received by MMM and PMC members. This partnership integrates services through better intrahospital care, improved and coordinated clinical supervision, connectivity through technology and better communication. Its objective is to ensure that the information of patients flows correctly and swiftly among their health professionals to guarantee the continuity of care.
“We are excited to be able to bring forth partnerships like this one in Puerto Rico. The reality is that local and federal regulatory agencies are increasingly demanding that we all improve health services in a cost-effective way and particularly by making better use of technology. The more we promote collaboration and join forces, the better we can serve patients, ensure adequate treatments and better use of the medical resources we have in our community. In essence, this partnership allows us to maximize the quality standards of both companies,” said Dr. Richard Shinto, Chief Executive Officer of MMM Holdings, LLC.
This partnership seeks to achieve an integrated care of the highest quality, helping Medicare beneficiaries receive the healthcare they deserve while meeting the standards of quality required by both companies. For her part, Karen Artau, Esq., President of Metro Pavía Health System stated, “We feel very satisfied because we are combining the experience of both organizations to improve the health and quality of the life of the patients we care for.”
Through this partnership, MMM and PMC members will also enjoy value-added services in affected hospitals, such as: free newspapers or magazines in bedrooms, free television the second day of a hospital stay, a 25-percent discount in rates for private rooms, as well as constant support on behalf of the Department for Patient Services. Among these benefits, patients’ caregivers are also taken into consideration and will be offered one snack per day. Artau also stated, “It is important for Metro Pavía Health System that our patients feel well cared for even when their health is at a delicate state.”
“With this partnership, we further complement the services we offer to the population we serve. The hospitals within the Metro-Pavía network have an island-wide reach with over 30 care centers, including clinics and hospitals. Our members at MMM and PMC know that they will receive coordinated and integrated care, which brings them peace of mind because they will not only have access, but the guarantee that both the hospital and the plans are working hand-in-hand to ensure they get the care they need. We will serve as facilitators while they are there and also when they are discharged, since we are aware that planning after a discharge is vital to avoid health complications and unnecessary readmissions after leaving a hospital,” said Orlando González, Esq., CPA, President of MMM and PMC.
Currently, MMM and PMC also have partnerships with other hospitals like the Doctor’s Center Hospital, Hermanos Meléndez Hospital and Caribbean Medical Center. “These partnerships have turned out to be of great benefit to our members at MMM and PMC, since they are guaranteed access and above all else, quality in service,” emphasized Orlando González, Esq., CPA, President of MMM and PMC.
