ATLANTA, Ga., Jan. 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - PREMEDEX is pleased to announce the launch of its Chronic Care Management Solution Suite, which is focused on helping physician practices address the growing financial and operational challenges associated with patient care related to chronic conditions, such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease and mental illness.
Effective January 1, 2015, physicians can bill Medicare for Chronic Care Management (CCM) using new billing codes. Under these new guidelines, physicians can be reimbursed, once every 30 days, for providing specific non-face-to-face services to qualified beneficiaries. The PREMEDEX CCM Solution effectively reduces the start-up and ongoing costs associated with new processes for providers and allows for faster implementation and avoidance of costly delays. Using PREMEDEX healthcare coordinators and the cloud-based PREMEDEX software platform, PREMEDEX enrolls patients, engages with them monthly, tracks inpatient/ED use, and delivers required health and billing data to the physician practice for reimbursement.
"Through our partnerships with both hospitals and care providers, we identified the needs of physician practices to deliver proactive patient care while also managing operating costs. Our CCM Solution provides a turn-key program for physician practices of all sizes, and we are confident that PREMEDEX can deliver similar positive results as we have experienced with our patient engagement programs for hospitals. Enrolling beneficiaries and providing the monthly care management requirements will be challenging and we are well equipped to do this on behalf of our practice partners," commented Van Willis, President of PREMEDEX.
"The advanced use of technology combined with innovative processes will determine success for physicians and hospitals alike," added Jim Bowling, Co-Founder of PREMEDEX. "With our rapid software development approach, healthcare coordinator resource pool, and embracing partner feedback to continuously improve our programs, we are confident that our CCM Solution will be well-received among physicians looking to move their practices forward."
PREMEDEX provides a technology enabled service platform via a cloud-based subscription model. The PREMEDEX platform and staff of healthcare coordinators streamline the communication process with patients and enable providers to capitalize on chronic care management, capture transitional care management revenue, reduce avoidable readmission, and improve patient outcomes.
