Ad Hoc reduction committee - Project was launched to determine where inefficiencies were in the ad hoc process, streamlined once identified and created an action plan. Each of these steps was important to create a successful plan and to save money. The project achieved a 35% volume reduction and resulted in a reduction of force by two FTE’s. This project was a part of a global ‘Magellan Health Services’ initiative to make our internal servicing processes as uniform as possible across all lines of business. Project was a one-year initiative involving 15+ default management operational teams across three separate lines of business. Project was delivered on time and within budget.

States, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Project was a multi-million-dollar initiative, involving 10+ default management operational teams across two separate corporations. Project duration was two + years. Project was delivered on time and within budget.
Monthly Lunch and Learns – The goal of the L&L’s is to enhance learning for individuals within the Network department that may not know or understand other areas other than where they are currently working. This gives them an opportunity to ask questions and to better understand the dynamic of how all departments labor together. Meetings are held in a conference setting allowing attendees to attend via phone or in a conference room at a CMC site. All meetings are recorded and added to our intranet for further viewing if it has been missed. Steps to preparing are sending out meeting invites to all attendees, scheduling conference rooms around the U.S. CMCs to accommodate those that will be in attending in person, setting up phone lines for those that cannot make it in person, sending reminder emails, training the presenter on Global Meet so they understand how to navigate, introducing the guest speaker, recording the training and working with the Magnet Administrator to get the MP4 uploaded so that it can be viewed. After the L&L’s are complete a survey and attestation are made available to those who attended to get department credit for the training and to add to their scorecard.
Monthly Operations Report (MOR) – The purpose of this report is to collect monthly, all the network department metrics (raw data and commentary), to update upper management on department outcomes for the previous month. The MOR highlights each department’s information in a snapshot with graphs and commentary specific to that area of expertise. The MOR is stored on SharePoint for all contributors to add their individual departmental information on their specific page. Once the contributors add their data and all are complete an email goes out to all the approvers (Sr. Directors and VP) for Sarbanes Oxley reporting. When all is approved the upcoming month’s report will be created and emails will go out to contributors that it is ready for input. Calendar reminders are sent each month to remind contributors of their due dates. Follow-up is extremely important with this report along with coordinating with contributing staff to ensure that all formulas and commentary are correct within the needed time-frame.
