How mHealth Can Enhance a Physician’s Brand

Posted by Travis Bond

Oct 7, 2016 10:17:00 AM

In an increasingly digital world, patients are becoming more tech- and mobile-savvy in the way they search for and experience healthcare. But far too many physicians are not taking advantage of the mobile revolution, or using medical apps or other mobile health technology to enhance their care delivery outside the point of care.

It’s a disconnect that needs to change as healthcare providers who don’t engage with mobile technology risk being compared to taxicabs in the world of Uber. Further, as the industry continues the volume-to-value revolution, patients—especially those with chronic or complex conditions—will require communication outside the practice walls. Being seen as outdated and inaccessible in an online environment could affect a consumer’s perception of a physician’s ability to provide the highest-quality care.

Things to Consider Before Starting a CCM Program

Posted by Mark Nalywajko

Apr 22, 2016 11:00:00 AM

One-on-One with Amy Gleason: Part 2

There is a lot to seriously consider before you jump right in to administering your own Chronic Care Management (CCM) program. Compliance should be at the very top of your must-have list. After CMS gets it off the ground, they will start enforcing its requirements like nobody’s business, then dish out the fines for those who are not compliant. Many providers will also need to decide if they have the manpower to administer the program themselves, or if they want to partner with a CCM provider.

Beware the bargain hunters that are looking for extreme deals, in order to reduce costs. Corners will be cut, and cheap programs risk compliance with CMS resulting in potential fines. Finally, providers need to find the best way to integrate CCM with their practice EMR. Finding a custom solution instead of a one size fits all bargain basement product, is certainly a challenge. In Part 2 of a special series, RN, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of CareSync, Amy Gleason, answers questions that will help providers overcome these challenges.

More Doctoring, Less Documenting: Medicare's Chronic Care Management Made Easy

Posted by The CareSync Team

Aug 21, 2015 11:53:00 AM

Doctors, medical practice administrators: you've probably heard by now about the Chronic Care Management billing code from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). It's overwhelmingly likely that you are already providing care coordination services for Medicare patients with two or more chronic conditions.

It's also likely, unfortunately, that you still haven't figured out how to get paid for it. Medical practices really can participate in Medicare's Chronic Care Management program and improve patient care without drowning in added paperwork and red tape.

Here's what you need to know to get started:

The Billing Code .Medicare's Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code 99490 pays, on average, $43 per month to health care providers who deliver 20 or more minutes of non face-to-face chronic care coordination (among other requirements) to eligible Medicare beneficiaries with 2 or more chronic conditions.
