Organizations collectively provide clinical resources and business process solutions to improve care quality while lowering costs.
Tampa, Florida – August 30, 2020 – Two Tampa-based companies, HealthAxis Group, LLC (HealthAxis), and Toney HealthCare Consulting (THCC), are collaborating to meet the unique needs of government-sponsored and commercial health insurance companies and their members. As experts in their respective areas of healthcare, the organizations draw upon each other to bring creative solutions to health plans to help them drive efficiencies, lower costs and improve health outcomes.
The arrangement brings together THCC’s advisory and medical management-focused service solutions with HealthAxis’ full-service third-party administration (TPA) services and claims and benefits management technology. THCC will provide leadership and guidance on clinical strategy and best practices in clinical operations, quality improvement, accreditation and regulatory compliance to joint customers. In addition, THCC deploys to health plans seasoned doctors, nurses, clinical social workers and therapists to manage and execute essential health management functions on an interim basis or for longer periods of time. These clinicians help individuals with care authorizations, coordination of care across various healthcare providers, and assistance in navigating the healthcare system.
THCC’s specialized services will complement HealthAxis’ business process and administrative services, the HxOps component of their end-to-end, fully integrated healthcare operations solution, HxOne. HxOps includes benefits enrollment, member management, billing, provider credentialing and claims processing. HealthAxis provides web portals for providers and members along with many other back-office and third-party administration capabilities. In addition, the HxOne solution generates quality and performance metrics, identifies and prevents improper claims, supports compliance and more, powered by the most advanced claims system on the market.
“We are excited to be engaging with Toney HealthCare Consulting to bring even more innovative and robust solutions to our customers, and most importantly, help them best serve their members,” said Jason Patchen, president of HealthAxis. “Together, we can bring our clinical, technical and business process resources to the forefront to drive efficiencies, improve outcomes and lower costs.”
The organizations individually and together serve Medicare Advantage, Medicaid and Commercial populations nationwide.

We are pleased to be collaborating with them in a complementary way to meet the needs of health plan customers,” said Sam Toney, M.D., CEO of Toney HealthCare. “There are times in customer engagements when we recognize opportunities to further support customers’ objectives. Our agreement with HealthAxis enables us to draw on each other to deliver creative solutions.”
