and improves outcomes for high-need high-cost patient population which
included complex care, chronic care, comorbidity, hospice & palliative care

Government Reimbursement Through alternative payment models, CMS is creating a new framework that
rewards providers based on value of care they deliver as opposed to
fee-for-service. To optimize these financial incentives, providers need to closely
manage performance measures for shared risk and savings—with a focus on
patient satisfaction and preventive care quality.
Healthcare utilizes this new framework to drive better revenue through tools and automated technology for patient behaviour modification technologies, patient engagement, continual monitoring, and virtual visits to demonstrate high-value care.
Chronic Care Management (CCM) A Government Reimbursement Program
Since January 1, 2019, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has made remote care a separate billable service with 3 new CPT codes for Chronic Care Remote Physiologic Monitoring (CC-RPM), or Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM).
This is a great opportunity for providers to increase revenue, improve patient care and outcomes, and meet other metrics for patient engagement and satisfaction. Monthly revenue from CC-RPM can be up to $ 144.00 per patient per month, and up to $ 186.00 per patient per month if combined with CCM generating a combined annual revenue about $1.15M for 500 patients.
