Rocky Mountain Health Network will play a key role in improving quality and cost-efficiency over the full continuum of medical care. Comprehensive business and management services options are available to support medical providers and facilities.
Rocky Mountain Health Network, Inc., is a Physician Hospital Organization (PHO). A PHO is a vehicle that enables hospitals and physicians to work collaboratively toward accomplishing agreed upon objectives. The primary purpose for forming a PHO is to develop improved methods of healthcare delivery that incorporate comprehensive clinical integration. The future success of healthcare is dependent upon hospitals, physicians and other care givers working together. The PHO is an excellent model because it creates the entity that brings everyone together.
RMHN was founded in 1991 by St. Vincent Healthcare
and its affiliated medical staff. RMHN was formed to
provide a comprehensive network of providers that
contracts with commercial payers for the provision of
care in Yellowstone and surrounding counties. Today,
RMHN brings together hospitals, surgery centers,
primary care physicians, specialists and allied health professional to help employers and others with quality, cost and access.
RMHN has over 1,000 provider members throughout Montana and Wyoming. Through the successful collaboration of these members, tens of thousands of people have access to the highest quality care. RMHN simplifies its member’s ability to participate in multiple health plans. As a messenger model, RMHN serves as the liaison with managed care organizations and each member has the ability to opt in or opt out of participating in the payer agreement. RMHN currently manages over 30 payer agreements on behalf of its members. RMHN works proactively with payers, third party administrators and other networks to ensure continued access to high quality healthcare.
In the Fall of 2013, RMHN formed a wholly owned
subsidiary, Rocky Mountain Accountable Health Network
(RMAHN). RMAHN is the Accountable Care Organization for St. Vincent Healthcare and its affiliated providers.
Members of RMHN have access to the ACO and all of its initiatives. For additional information on RMAHN, click here.
