So, you're interested in starting a Chronic Care Management program, but not sure where to begin? In this video, we'll discuss the steps you can take to set up and implement a CCM program in your practice, including making a plan for your office, educating your staff, and hiring a certified care manager. We'll also discuss the many benefits you and your patients stand to gain by expanding the offerings of your practice to include care management.

The Importance of Chronic Care Management

More than 60% of Americans suffer from at least one chronic condition, with 40% of that population battling two or more chronic diseases. 

With those numbers in mind, it’s obvious that CCM will be a valuable and much-needed resource for years to come. 

Additionally, Healthcare providers are transitioning to value-based care and must find ways to promote clinical efficiency and improve health outcomes for patients. Care coordination programs, like CCM, can help ease the transition and ensure your patients’ health goals are being met.

Not only can a Chronic Care Management program help with value-based metrics, it can also provide a source of additional revenue for your practice. Managing 250 patients in a CCM program can produce over $250K in annual reimbursements, depending on the CPT code reimbursement rate in your area.

While starting any new venture can be daunting, we're here to walk you through the process, so that you'll know exactly what you're getting into. ThoroughCare has worked with clinics and physician practices across the country as they’ve established and scaled various care management programs, such as CCM.
