Matrix Medical Mobile Clinic

Matrix Medical Network of Arizona acquired HealthFair, based in Florida. Both businesses had expertise in medical assessments carried out on behalf of numerous health insurance companies: Matrix’s expertise was in sending registered health practitioners to people’s homes, and HealthFair’s expertise was in hosting assessments in mobile clinics at specially selected locations and times. To ensure the mobile clinics were fully utilized, a significant operational setup was created. Healthcare subscribers were contacted from call centers to make appointments at a location near to them. Buses were outfitted with a wide array of assessment tools, including mammogram machines. All equipment and employees had to be credentialled for the state in which the assessments took place. 

The acquisition created a business with more than 6,000 community-based providers across all 50 states of the USA, and the ability to offer health assessments to nearly one in five Medicare Advantage members. Matrix was backed by Frazier Healthcare Partners and The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) of Stamford, CT for the transaction.
