EDISON, N.J., July 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HealthEC, which earned the highest overall vendor satisfaction rating in the KLAS Research 2017 Population Health Management (PHM) Report, announced today that it has signed four new clients to its Chronic Care Management (CCM) module.

“Over the last 18 months, CCM services have gained widespread attention for the clinical and fiscal benefits offered to providers, and practices are increasingly recognizing what differentiates our solution from the competition,” said HealthEC Chief Executive Officer, Arthur Kapoor. “We are also aware that the sudden departure of a competitor from the CCM space has altered the industry landscape, and many providers want to know that the CCM partners they select are strong, technologically advanced and fiscally sound.”

HealthEC, which serves 1,800 primary care clients and has four million patients on its PHM platform, uses the same modern infrastructure for CCM customers that its non-CCM clients have relied on for years. With two decades of healthcare IT and population health management expertise, the firm’s new CCM customers are partnering with one of the most experienced PHM companies in the healthcare industry.

Our turnkey CCM solution optimizes patient care, health outcomes and reimbursements under Medicare’s CCM program, and offers unique features including:

  • Capture of all relevant patient clinical data from clients’ EMR and claims data to qualify the number of Medicare beneficiaries eligible for CCM, identify quality measures that patients are not in compliance with, and automatically generate care plans that are forwarded to physicians for approval.
     
  • Unique strategies for initial patient outreach and provider/staff training to optimize patient engagement and enrollment.
     
  • Localization of care coordinators in the client’s office or city, which allows for better supervision and communication, and a more cohesive team structure.
     
  • Monthly report that documents all activities completed on behalf of the patient, uploaded to the patient’s chart within the client’s EMR by assigned care coordinators. Clients can run billing summary reports, assess quality metrics compliance, and monitor productivity of assigned care coordinators on demand.  

“HealthEC is well positioned to help practices transition to the CCM program and we anticipate helping providers optimize their participation over the long term,” said Kapoor. “Our new clients will see immediate results using the CCM module, and we look forward to sharing their stories with the marketplace next year.”
