MCG

Informed. Collaborative. Effective.

MCG Health, part of the Hearst Health network, helps healthcare organizations (in both the government and private sectors) implement informed care strategies that proactively and efficiently move patients toward health. MCG’s transparent assessment of the latest research and scholarly articles – along with data analysis – gives patients, providers, and payers the vetted information they need to feel confident in their care management decisions.

How do we do it? We combine gold-standard content and innovative software solutions with quality analytics and benchmarking that can integrate seamlessly into virtually any EHR and case management workflow platform. Together, our products help drive effective care for a majority of commercially insured Americans, resulting in better outcomes and increased cost savings.

Gold Standard Care Guidance and Software Solutions

Effective care should lead to the best patient outcomes with the most efficient use of care resources. Healthcare groups that implement an informed healthcare strategy, leveraging MCG solutions, are able to improve patient outcomes while simultaneously increasing the efficiency of care resources. We help make healthcare more effective with evidence-based care guidelines that allow providers and health plans to drive effective care. We provide fast access to globally sourced, clinically validated best practices that support confident clinical decision-making. Our editors develop the care guidelines in strict accordance with the principles of evidence-based medicine. Annually, thousands of references are reviewed and ranked, with many unique citations.

“Each year, MCG editors identify the most important clinical evidence and use it to refine and expand care guidance,” says Jon Shreve, President of MCG. “Evidence-based standards of medical necessity and best practice care are constantly evolving. Having the latest research and data at their fingertips helps healthcare professionals improve patient care while managing costs.”

Care guidelines from MCG provide fast access to evidence-based medicine’s best practices and care plan tools across the continuum of treatment, providing clinical decision support and documentation which enables efficient transitions between care settings. Nine of the largest U.S. health plans and nearly 2,000 hospitals use our evidence-based guidelines and software. Today, our informed care strategies affect over 208 million covered lives.

Whether you’re a community hospital trying to reduce 30-day readmissions, a health plan looking to automate prior authorizations, or an EHR partner looking to integrate MCG into your platform, the right combination of guidelines and software is available to meet your needs.
