The number of Americans with multiple chronic diseases is growing rapidly. Research studies have established that ongoing care and management of these conditions has two important benefits: improved health/patient quality of life and reduced long-term care costs when crisis care intervention is needed. This ongoing care does not need to be delivered by the doctor in a medical facility but includes social services, multiple provider coordination, medication review, remote patient monitoring, etc.
The Dulcian white paper “Implementing Chronic Care Management (CCM)” describes how CCM can be implemented for a typical medical provider practice.
