What is Chronic Care Management  

Today, more than 130 million Americans suffer from a chronic illness, with 69% suffering from 2 or more chronic conditions. Due to this, 85% of Federal healthcare dollars are allocated to the treatment of chronic diseases, which has led Medicare to start reimbursing physicians for Chronic Care Management in 2015. This program offers patients a clear plan to manage their chronic conditions, all the while increasing their quality of life, decreasing emergency interventions and enabling practices and Medicare to better allocate resources. While Medicare has continued to increase funding and support to this program, most medical offices do not have the tools and resources to deliver this valuable service on their own.
