Jim Matuga, host of The Positively West Virginia Podcast turns to HMS President Leah Heimbach for the latest on how the company is handling COVID-19 while continuing to serve vulnerable populations in these challenging times.
HMS protects vulnerable populations and veterans, blending their unique healthcare and technology expertise to create bold yet cost-effective solutions that federal and state agencies and their private-sector partners need to make sure your loved ones get the best possible care in nursing homes and other healthcare settings, no matter where in America they live.
Leah Heimbach’s career path has included — lawyer, registered nurse, EMT-paramedic, flight paramedic, administrator of a federally funded injury control training and demonstration center, and executive director of a statewide emergency-physician nonprofit — and all of that vast experience converged when she co-founded Healthcare Management Solutions, LLC (HMS) in 2002.
Leah distilled a lifetime of high-impact roles into a business model designed to protect vulnerable people, which became her life’s focus and daily passion. She has developed and implemented compliance and risk management programs, reduced organizational costs by millions of dollars, and improved overall profitability for a variety of healthcare organizations.
