Allscripts Expands Coordinated Care Offering for Physicians to Achieve Centers for Medicare and Medicaid CCM Reimbursement Revenue Requirements
CHICAGO, April 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CFP Physicians Group in Casselberry, Fla., selected Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX) new Chronic Care Management (CCM) program to improve care for chronically ill patient populations. The program will enable CFP Physicians Group's participation in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) CCM reimbursement model creating the potential to achieve an increase in practice revenue.
With Value-based Care Services from Allscripts Professional Physicians Business, small physician practices can implement a CCM solution immediately, improving care management and outcomes for patients suffering from multiple chronic conditions. Allscripts also helps these practices meet the requirements for reimbursement, which includes patient outreach through care management protocols, medication management, as well as offering monthly 20-minute minimum of out-of-office care management services via phone or digital coverage.
Physician practices large and small can benefit from outsourcing the infrastructure, compliance and workflows needed to meet CMS reimbursement requirements beyond increasing practice revenue. Using CCM services by Allscripts, practices can experience an increase in appointment volumes, transition of care services, monthly medication reconciliations, and customized care planning. These benefits can help physician practices overcome the inherent challenges of building a CCM infrastructure without assistance.
"CFP Physicians Group is among the leading health care groups in Central Florida because we're dedicated to providing a lifetime of complete health care to every member of our patients' families," said Kelly Hidde, COO, CFP Physicians Group. "By partnering with Allscripts for our new Chronic Care Management program, we can advance the support of patients with two or more chronic conditions while participating in the CMS program. In these complex cases, enhancing our care coordination and outreach extends our ability to effectively treat patients in the most convenient way possible, and supports our full-service approach to health care."
"Due to time and staffing constraints, it can be difficult for smaller practices to take advantage of this new CMS offering. Allscripts simplifies the speed to and origination of a strong CCM program. As a result practices can enjoy faster and larger opportunities for additional reimbursement revenue generation," said Steve Lalonde, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Professional Physicians Business, Allscripts. "In addition, the increased frequency of patient contact can improve chronic care management, ultimately benefiting both the practice and their patients requiring more coordinated care. Allscripts also gives practices the flexibility of a fully scalable program. It's a win-win for everyone."
