This TED talk by Dr. Joe Kvedar, Professor at Harvard Medical School and self-described telehealth and virtual-care evangelist remains highly relevant. His main premise is that with the older population growing much faster than the young, the one-to-one doctor to patient model of healthcare delivery will become mathematically untenable.
You are a physician considering working with a case management partner to ease the burden of providing CCM services yourself. Or, you want to provide Remote Patient/Physiologic Monitoring services for your at-risk patients. How do you identify the partner that will work best with your practice?
Remote Physiologic Monitoring improves patient health while generating additional revenues for the practice. Since CMS now allows billing ‘incident to’ the physician’s direction, for many practices, partnering with a vendor offering a full turnkey solution is the best approach!
Chronic Care Management: Do it yourself? Contract with a Service? Not enough reimbursement to bother?
OF COURSE you want to keep your at-risk patients healthier by tracking them between visits, but that only works if you can do so economically and with as little management effort as possible. Perhaps you are already spending copious unpaid time managing care between office visits…
CMS recognizes management of chronic diseases as a critical component of primary care that contributes to better health and care for individuals. In 2015, to encourage doctors to do more chronic care management (and to compensate those who were already doing so) they added codes specifically for CCM to the physician fee schedule.
