Problem

How to effectively implement a Medicare rule that pays providers up to $42 per patient, per month, for providing non-face-to-face Chronic Care Management services to patients with two or more chronic health conditions.

Solution

Naples Internal Medicine Associates educated their patients about CCM, identified and signed up those eligible for the program, and used eClinicalWorks to implement the program promptly after January 1, 2015.

Results

Naples is now able to bill Medicare for monthly non-face-to-face time from about 400 patients, has reduced hospitalizations between 20% and 25%, and reports that between 90% and 95% of participants are happy with the CCM program.
