Quality Assurance for a Global Supply Chain Program
Our client is an Oregon-based health plan that administers Medicaid and Medicare benefits to over 300,000 members. Our client needed assistance with project management and operations improvement in preparation for a possible merger and acquisition with another health care organization.
The key challenges facing our clients were:
- Operations scalability
- Financial cost savings
- Lack of project management across multiple workstreams
- Market instability
- Impending federal and state regulatory changes
Client & Engagement Quick Facts
- Project Duration: 8 months
- Led business requirement discovery process for potential merger and acquisition.
- Successfully managed client and third-party company vendor to communicate, plan, and document department-level activities of our client.
- Frequently prepared agendas, presentations, data and relevant materials for Board of Directors and C-Suite meetings.

Kenny & Company provided our project management and process optimization experience to guide our client in successfully creating a strategy, communicate between organizations, and map out a proposed merged entity.

Our client can leverage the streamlined project management and cost savings initiatives for any future partnerships and general business operations. In addition, our client benefited from our document reorganization to decrease prior inefficiencies.
