Three Cardinal Innovations Healthcare executives in addition to the CEO have left the organization and are receiving severance payments. The behavioral healthcare organization that serves 850,000 members in 20 counties paid these four employees more than $3.8 million in severance. Cardinal announced Tuesday evening that Chief Information Officer Pete Murphy, Chief Operating Officer Will Woodell and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ranota Hall had all resigned.
Claims of a vindictive board of directors, more loyal to a CEO than the company they watch over. Throw in expensive staff parties and retreats and you'd have a shareholder scandal in publicly traded company. But when all of this happens and is paid for with tax dollars, you have something else entirely. The story of Cardinal Innovations Healthcare. If Cardinal had a center of gravity for Cardinal Innovations Healthcare, you would hope it would be what the company calls their members.
The board of Cardinal Innovations Healthcare has voted to fire controversial CEO Richard Topping. But, come Monday, Topping will still be employed and still be the head of the company. This unusual termination capped off an unusual night for company charged with administering $682 million tax dollars throughout 20 counties in North Carolina. Cardinal is the largest administrator of Medicaid-funded mental health, substance abuse and developmental disability services in the state.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
