Apr 13 15
CFP Physicians Group selected Allscripts new Chronic Care Management (CCM) program to improve care for chronically ill patient populations. The program will enable CFP Physicians Group's participation in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services'(CMS) CCM reimbursement model creating the potential to achieve an increase in practice revenue. With Value-based Care Services from Allscripts Professional Physicians Business, small physician practices can implement a CCM solution immediately, improving care management and outcomes for patients suffering from multiple chronic conditions. Allscripts also helps these practices meet the requirements for reimbursement, which includes patient outreach through care management protocols, medication management, as well as offering monthly 20-minute minimum of out-of-office care management services via phone or digital coverage. Physician practices large and small can benefit from outsourcing the infrastructure, compliance and workflows needed to meet CMS reimbursement requirements beyond increasing practice revenue. Using CCM services by Allscripts, practices can experience an increase in appointment volumes, transition of care services, monthly medication reconciliations, and customized care planning. These benefits can help physician practices overcome the inherent challenges of building a CCM infrastructure without assistance.
