New Options in Chronic Care Management
The Chronic Care Management (CCM) program created by CMS has been designed to encourage and pay for the ongoing patient communication essential to effective management of chronic diseases. Until now practices did their best to stay in contact with their chronically ill patients outside of the office visit without compensation.
This whitepaper discusses why the CCM program was created, which patients qualify for the program and its benefits to patients and physicians’ practices.
The Case for Outsourcing Chronic Care Management
Return On Investment studies have shown that Chronic Care Management (CCM) provided by nurses and CMAs provides the best return. However, substantial time and money are required for practices to implement a CCM program on their own. Off-site teams minimize required investment while maintaining desired quality of care.
This whitepaper discusses how to achieve the best ROI for implementing a CCM program and why you should outsource the process to a third party.
