Leveraging RPM and CCM In Your Practice Webinar
May 25, 2022, at 2 pm EDT
Chronic Care Management (CCM) has become a hot topic in healthcare as more providers implement the services in their practice- either by building it in-house or outsourcing the work to a third-party vendor.
According to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), roughly 117 million adults have a chronic health condition, and an estimated 1 in 4 suffer from two or more chronic conditions (CMS, 2021). CCM delivers much-needed care to these individuals and vastly improves their quality of life. When providers use CCM, patients benefit from one entity overseeing every aspect of their care, which enhances the nature of their treatment. With this more holistic approach to care, patients have lower risks of depression (Rossow, R, 2018), and providers benefit from having a complete picture of the patient’s health when administering care.
The CMS further cemented the importance of CCM when, in 2015, it created a reimbursement program for providers who offer this additional service to patients with two or more chronic conditions. Given the vital role CCM plays in improving the quality of life for patients battling chronic conditions and the added incentive for healthcare facilities to set it up, it benefits practices to consider incorporating these services.
In our upcoming webinar on Wednesday, May 25, Professional Risk has invited Esquire, Reema Taneja of Nixon Gwilt Law Group, to review the benefits, risks, and implementation options associated with CCM.
Questions Reema will specifically touch upon include:
Why CCM is beneficial for the patient
How CCM can benefit your practice – both from patient safety and revenue perspectives
Patient Safety – Improved quality of life for patients with chronic conditions
Revenue – Billing for the extra time spent communicating with patients
How you can add CCM into your practice
Build with an in-house team
Outsource to 3rd party vendors
What are the risk considerations for either implementation track (build internally vs. outsourcing)?
How can I bill for these services, and what are reimbursements?
Remote Patient Monitoring and the role it plays in CCM
Following the presentation, we will allow some time for a Q&A session. We strongly encourage registrants to bring questions about Chronic Care Management and look forward to having an insightful conversation about this excellent benefit.
