For healthcare practices looking to enhance their care coordination strategy, combining Chronic Care Management (CCM) and Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) offers numerous benefits. This winning combination is now made possible through fully managed services that revolutionize the approach to comprehensive patient care. By integrating CCM and RPM into their practices, healthcare providers can improve patient and provider satisfaction, deliver better care to those in need, and increase reimbursement.
Let’s first understand what CCM and RPM are. CCM is a care model that supports patients with long-term conditions like diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. It involves collaborative treatment, regular health monitoring, medication management, and care coordination. On the other hand, RPM uses technology, such as digital devices and sensors, to remotely collect and monitor a patient’s health status. It allows patients to stay connected with their providers from the comfort of their homes, enabling ongoing engagement in their care.
So why does the combined approach of CCM and RPM work so well? Firstly, it offers significant advantages to patients. Most patients qualify for both programs and become highly engaged in their remote care plans. Although patients may not be aware of which program they are enrolled in, they value the strong relationship with their doctor and care coordinators. When technology supports this relationship, it enhances the overall patient experience.
From a practice perspective, the combined approach also maximizes reimbursement for remote care services without adding additional burdens on physicians and staff. Many practices are already performing the work associated with both programs but are missing out on full reimbursement because they lack a formal program structure.
CCM and RPM go hand in hand for practices, allowing them to quickly scale their programs and engage a large number of eligible patients. Introducing, enrolling, and onboarding patients into both programs simultaneously is seamless and efficient.
This combined approach offers high-touch health coaching, digital engagement, and holistic care for patients. Medicare’s RPM and CCM programs complement each other, delivering better patient outcomes while acting as a scalable revenue generator for healthcare practices.
Key benefits of the combined approach to Remote Patient Monitoring and Chronic Care Management include:
- Increased patient engagement
- Improved health outcomes
- Early detection of health issues
- Personalized care
- Enhanced efficiency for providers
By adopting these programs, practices can instantly add value to each patient appointment without adding to the total time it takes for an office visit.
