What is chronic care/disease management?

Chronic Care Management (CCM) services consist of establishing, implementing, revising, or monitoring a care plan for a patient with multiple chronic conditions.

Chronic Care Management (CCM) services consist of establishing, implementing, revising, or monitoring a care plan for a patient with multiple chronic conditions. CCM services typically focus on advanced primary care aspects such as a continuous relationship between the patient and a designated care team member, providing support for chronic diseases, 24/7 access to care, preventive care, and timely sharing of health information, all of which are often performed outside the face-to-face context.

CCM patients often require a lot of attention and RPM can help practitioners keep track of their CCM patients’ conditions on an ongoing basis without requiring the patient to travel to the physician’s office.
