Chronic Care Management
The Chronic Care Management (CCM) program is a wellness program. It is designed to provide additional connectivity between patients with chronic conditions and their doctor or healthcare provider in-between office visits. The program also provides additional resources and periodic “check-ins” to stay up to date on how each patient is doing.
The CCM program promotes wellness by staying in touch with patients, identifying difficulties or concerns, prior to an emergency room or hospital visit. For more information about the program, please watch this short video.
Chronic Care Management is a new health initiative begun by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to proactively promote the health of individuals who have 2 or more chronic conditions.
