Mariela Twiggs, CEO of MTT, joins leading disclosure management company as executive director of training and education, client relations
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. – September 9, 2013 – MRO Corp., a leading provider of technology-driven disclosure management services and applications for healthcare organizations, has acquired the assets of MTT Enterprises, LLC (Metairie, La.), a provider of release-of-information (ROI) services. Mariela Twiggs, CEO of MTT, will assume the role of MRO’s executive director of training and education, client relations. The transaction took effect September 6.
During the transition, existing MTT customers will benefit from MRO’s industry-leading disclosure management technology and services with no disruptions to access or customer service. MTT clients will additionally benefit immediately from MRO’s Health Information Handler (HIH) certification and esMD gateway capabilities for electronic submission to CMS and integration with their EHRs. Customers will also be able to leverage MRO’s patient portal offerings to achieve compliance with the 2014 Stage 1 and 2 meaningful use “view, download, transmit” objective.
“MRO is a great fit for the MTT customer base, and I’m proud to join the team,” says Twiggs. “As privacy regulations and health information technology initiatives continued to add complexities to the protected health information (PHI) disclosure process, it was evident to me that our clients needed access to more sophisticated systems for delivering, tracking, managing and reporting disclosures. To best serve our clients and excel in today’s landscape of EHRs, health information exchanges and post-payment audits, we chose to merge with MRO, a proven technology leader in the disclosure management space.”
“The acquisition of MTT supports our marketplace strategy for continued expansion throughout the U.S., extending our footprint across the South,” says Steve Hynes, president of MRO. “We are excited to have Mariela join our management team, and we look forward to providing enhanced service to the MTT customer base with our suite of disclosure management and HIE solutions.”
