Unfortunately, we find that many members in CareSync’s Chronic Care Management program suffer from more than chronic illness. They often suffer from chronic loneliness. Sometimes a kind word or thought, or even a little bit of laughter can prove to be the best medicine.

Guiding the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ shift from volume to value is the CMS Quality Strategy. One of the six goals in this overall quality strategy is to “strengthen person and family engagement as partners in care.” Earlier this month, CMS made progress toward accomplishing this goal by announcing the release of the CMS Person and Family Engagement Strategy. What is it and how can its principles be used to increase patient engagement for your practice?

Breathe Easy … CCM Has Your Patients Covered

Posted by The CareSync Team

Oct 10, 2016 11:48:00 AM

At CareSync, we believe Chronic Care Management is more than just fulfilling a list of Medicare’s requirements. You can count on us to work hard to resolve issues that stand between your patients and better health.

Here is just one example from September where our care coordination made a difference: A member called CareSync to make an update to his account. During the call, we learned he was having difficulty getting supplies for his CPAP machine. He said the seal was leaking on his mask and he was cleaning the tubing once a week instead of changing it out.

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 Being seen as outdated and inaccessible in an online environment could affect a consumer’s perception of a physician’s ability to provide the highest-quality care.

Physicians can do a lot in the exam room. They can ask questions, listen attentively, take notes, render a diagnosis, and prescribe treatment and medications. What a physician cannot do, however, is significantly improve patient outcomes by only making health recommendations just during the visit, or by only sending lab results over a secure patient portal.

In order to truly impact care, physicians must extend their reach and presence beyond the practice walls, to the places where patients live, work and play.

Healthcare Perspectives Differ: Can Care Coordination Narrow the Gap?

Posted by Travis Bond

Aug 23, 2016 8:51:05 AM

A study conducted by Y&R’s BAV Consulting, on behalf of Xerox®, found patients and the healthcare professionals who provide and insure their care have very different views on topics such as patient empowerment and control. How can we solve for the difference? Could care coordination be the missing link?
