CHRONIC CARE MANAGEMENT

Chronic Care Management (CCM) is an initiative developed by Medicare to better manage the healthcare needs and issues of an aging population.  In order to qualify for CCM a patient must see a physician during the last twelve months and have two chronic disease diagnosis. There are over 100 qualifying diagnosis, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity…  Eighty-two percent of Medicare patients qualify for CCM.

CCM is a patient resource and contact for healthcare needs associated with their conditions.  The CCM communicates at least monthly with each patient.  Calls, texts or emails, both incoming and outgoing, occur regarding medications, conditions, setting physician appointments or a wide variety of issues.

Best of all, the provider collects a monthly fee from Medicare of roughly $30 per patient – while ChartSpan does all the work.  Even better, providers enjoy an 8% increase in patient encounters, improved patient quality scores (MIPS) and reduced exposure to financial penalties.
