Maxwell Healthcare Associates Partners with Home Health and Hospice Coding and Appeals Company, Gate
SHOREVIEW Minn. and MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. – Aug. 16, 2018 – Maxwell Healthcare Associates (MHA), a post-acute operational, financial, technological, clinical and regulatory consulting firm and Gateway Coding and Consulting (Gateway), a home health and hospice coding, recovery and appeals company, today announced their alliance. The union will add a coding and recovery arm to MHA’s services and full-service home health and hospice consulting to Gateway’s -- facilitating additional service lines to both entities’ clients.
“We started MHA to help our colleagues in the industry best navigate this challenging time of reforms and regulations,” said MHA CEO and co-founder, Tom Maxwell. “Accurate, fast and affordable coding combined with recovery and appeals expertise is more important than ever as providers address new payment models.”
“Coding is an essential task that when offloaded to external experts like Gateway, offers providers more time to work on the big picture aspects of their businesses and better serve patients," said MHA president and co-founder, Jennifer Maxwell, M Ed. “After vetting handfuls of coding companies, we found Gateway to be the most aligned with MHA philosophies and processes — ensuring the best quality of services to our clients.

“Maxwell Healthcare Associates has quickly become one of the most recognized and distinguished names in home health and hospice consulting,” said Gateway co-founder and president, Rob Drew. “We are thrilled to be their “gateway” into coding by providing coding services to their top-of-the-line clients.”
This is the second partnership announcement this month for MHA. Company leaders say the industry should expect more announcements as MHA forms additional partnerships to better serve its customers.
“We pride ourselves on being the leader in home care and hospice consulting. We want to partner with those who can best serve our customers. This is the formula that allows us to provide next-level service and expertise to our home health and hospice clients and their patients,” said Tom Maxwell.
To ensure MHA and Gateway’s existing clients experience seamless onboarding to each organizations’ service offerings, both organizations will work hand-in-hand behind the scenes to reduce duplicative communications and other redundancies.
