Chronic Care Management Benefits Patients and Providers Alike
Over the past ten years, the government and private payers have introduced numerous programs aimed at controlling healthcare costs and improving quality. In the United States, far too many patients have multiple chronic conditions, are noncompliant, and/or require continuous reinforcement and coaching to manage their health. At the same time, payers have not stepped up to compensate providers for delivering the coaching and long-term care that’s needed to positively impact patient health.
