Chicago – June 23, 2017 – The Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) recently reviewed NEPC's investment consulting services using the Peer Review process. After undergoing the rigorous review, NEPC’s investment consulting service has been awarded the "Peer Reviewed by HFMA®" designation.

NEPC's investment consulting service consults to more than 35 healthcare organizations, representing over $60 billion in plan assets.  The practice has extensive experience advising healthcare organizations, leveraging a holistic risk analysis and management framework, and treasury and plan sponsor investment expertise to help clients meet their objectives across a full range of investment pools.

 "Achieving the HFMA recognition validates our team’s hard work and insight into the healthcare industry," said David Moore, Partner at NEPC and the practice leader for the Healthcare team. “We look forward to continuing to serve our clients with qualified custom solutions and remarkable results.”

HFMA's Peer Review process provides healthcare financial managers with an objective, third-party evaluation of business solutions used in the healthcare workplace. The rigorous, 11-step process includes a Peer Review panel review comprising current customers, prospects who have not made a purchase, and industry experts. The Peer Review status of the healthcare business solution and its performance claims are based on effectiveness, quality and usability, price, value, and customer and technical support.

"We’re pleased to have NEPC achieve their HFMA Peer Reviewed designation," said HFMA President and CEO Joseph J. Fifer, FHFMA, CPA. "The HFMA Peer Review process assures our members, through a rigorous evaluation, that the reviewed healthcare business solution meets an objective, third-party assessment of overall effectiveness, quality, and value."
