The desire to improve health outcomes for individuals with serious illness coupled with opportunities to generate additional revenue have prompted healthcare providers to step up chronic care management initiatives. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services now reimburses physician practices for select chronic care management (CCM) services for Medicare beneficiaries, with more private payors likely to follow suit.
2015 Healthcare Benchmarks: Chronic Care Management documents emerging trends in chronic care management, resulting in a comprehensive set of best practices and benchmarks on care coordination for individuals with complex health conditions.
This market data also includes analysis and guidelines on use of CMS' CPT codes for Chronic Care Management.
