Increase awareness: Introduce your patients to CCM

February 26, 2020 ABILITY

They say ignorance is bliss. While that may be true for some things in life, it certainly doesn’t apply to healthcare. And for patients with chronic conditions, being informed about care options is critical.

Fortunately, Medicare’s Chronic Care Management (CCM) program helps patients get the coordinated care they need.

Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you had a feature rich application filled to the brim with resources designed to educate your patients about CCM?

What effect would that have on your practice? How many patients would sign up for your Chronic Care Management program if they were well informed?

Chronic Care Management can transform the quality of care offered by your staff, and provide a wealth of benefits for your patients. These include:

A healthcare team to coordinate, monitor and follow up on tests and treatment
Reduced risk of adverse health events
Access to care 24/7, including holidays and weekends
Medication management to avoid adverse reactions
Periodic check-ins from clinical providers

If your patients remain in the dark about CCM, they’re missing out on a major opportunity to receive the enhanced care they need. And since Medicare pays your practice for every qualified patient who signs up for your CCM program and receives the required care coordination each month, there’s no reason NOT to inform your patients at every opportunity.

ABILITY NAVIGATOR CCM can help by providing patient education resources and reporting for staff to identify potential participants within your practice.
