Excerpt from New White Paper
Chronic Care Management: Improve Patient Health, Increase Practice Revenue
Chronic disease is a significant problem, but chronic care management helps to provide solutions.
CDC research consistently shows that effective CCM reduces the costs of care for chronic disease patients while improving their overall health. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has stated that CCM may help patients avoid the need for more costly services in the future by proactively managing patient health, rather than only treating severe or acute disease and illness. And a 2017 Health Intelligence Network survey of healthcare executives in healthcare companies with CCM programs found that two-thirds of respondents observed a drop in hospitalizations that they attributed to CCM and 92% reported improvements in healthcare quality as a result of CCM.
In addition, CCM is about support. Having a care coordinator manage a patient’s medical appointments, remind them to follow up on doctor’s instructions, be there when they have a question or concern, find them a support group for emotional needs, or provide education about a condition that helps them manage it better can do wonders for someone who is struggling with an illness or feeling alone in doing so.
