Improve Diabetes Care with a CCM Tool

Because of the continuous need for care, monitoring and evaluation, many primary care physicians have a difficult time effectively treating patients with diabetes. According to a study by the New England Journal of Medicine, “almost half of patients with diabetes don’t meet their related goals, including A1C blood glucose levels, blood pressure, and LDL cholesterol levels.”

Improving care for diabetic patients is twofold: it requires participation from the patient as well as the provider. Encouraging patients to check the portal,  communicate with the designated contact person from the practice, and follow through with scheduled appointments are a few ways they can monitor their own care. Practices should utilize efficient technology, such as a Chronic Care Management tool paired with an EHR, and maintain consistent communication with patients in order to maintain their care plans.

Helping patients lead healthier lives is the primary reason most providers enter the medical profession, but far too often they get bogged down in administrative tasks. Chronic Care Management, or CCM, looks to refocus attention on providing services that lead to improved health within your overall patient population. CCM is the coordination of care services which are furnished outside of regular office visits.  A dedicated CCM tool paired with your EHR can help improve chronic patient care, as well as:

  • Increased Patient Involvement
  • Improved Patient Satisfaction
  • Reimbursement
  • New Revenue Stream
  • Better Health Outcomes
