Chronic illnesses are responsible for 86% of our healthcare costs. As a Provider you should have strategies to engage your chronically ill patients in sustainable manner.
Chronic illnesses are responsible for 86% of our healthcare costs. However, our healthcare system is geared towards cure not prevention. We know how to treat an end-stage renal disease or fix a broken limb from a fall, but we don’t have clear protocols to engage patients and prevent these diseases. Providers who want to help their patients don’t have the time, the reimbursement model, nor the clinical workflow to help these patients.
Recently Dr. Sonny Hyare, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Continuity Care, Inc., and a national leader in Physician Engagement and Practice Transformation, delivered a playbook that will help you understand strategies to engage your chronically ill patients in a sustainable manner. The video blog (vlog) would also provide answers to questions related to the profitability of running chronic care management (CCM) programs.
