If you’re one of the nearly 2,900 primary care physicians who began participating in Round 1 of Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+), or you’re one of the thousands expected to apply for Round 2, you know it’s not without its challenges. This five-year program involves robust care delivery requirements, expectations to meet certain quality and utilization measures, and risk associated with receiving prospective payments. But it also presents an exciting opportunity to be a key player in changing the way practices deliver care, payers pay for it, and patients experience it.

New CCM Opportunities for RHCs and FQHCs

Posted by Travis Bond

May 15, 2017 10:30:00 AM

After waiting a year to be able to participate in Medicare’s Chronic Care Management (CCM) program, Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) still faced a formidable obstacle to implementing CCM.

In 2016, they could be reimbursed for providing CCM to their patients, but they were unable to contract with third parties to help them do so. Because CCM had to be provided by their clinical staff under direct supervision by the practitioner, offering CCM became challenging at best.

Shedding Light on the Dark Spaces in Healthcare

Posted by Travis Bond

Mar 8, 2017 4:39:28 PM

Between office visits, between different providers, or during transitions in care, patients are often navigating a fragmented healthcare system on their own. In turn, physicians miss out on vital information, having to rely on patients to tell them if they saw a different doctor, experienced an emergency, or started taking a new medication. These voids in communication, care, and guidance are often called the dark spaces in healthcare.

Care coordination services are designed to shed light on these dark spaces.

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.
