Chronic care management provides patients ongoing health and wellness support, greater access to appropriate medical resources and care team members, and a reduced need for emergency care. Meanwhile, practitioners experience improved care coordination, better patient satisfaction and engagement, and an opportunity to boost revenue. It's clear that CMS has affirmed support for CCM as a long-term patient care and coverage strategy by expanding reimbursements. In fact, there may never be a better time to add or grow a chronic care management program.
The bottom line: Chronic care management provides streamlined wraparound care for patients — and it's also good for business. So how does your organization take advantage of this growing opportunity?
An effective CCM program requires practice managers, practitioners, and clinical staff to work together to identify and enroll eligible beneficiaries and then establish processes that work well for everyone. If you are considering adding a CCM program or growing an existing program, you may also want to investigate launching other care management programs, such as remote patient monitoring and behavioral health integration.
With many complex moving pieces to juggle, you may find launching a CCM program can be difficult. But it doesn't have to be.
Prevounce has taken the lead to create user-friendly solutions that streamline the provision of chronic care management services, and we can help you build the components of your CCM program and navigate the challenges you will encounter along the way. With the right CCM software and vendor to support your efforts, you can keep the focus on delivering patient care and expanding your patient base.
