Chronic care management (CCM) deals with patients suffering from diseases that last more than 3 months. Managing these patients warrants challenges on a whole new level for providers. These patients require face-to-face meetings with experts for treatment and counseling purposes. Physicians are required to provide them with a thorough consultation for a minimum of 20 minutes or longer.
Healthcare providers face constant challenges and shortfalls in accurately billing and coding for these high-risk patients. A need for reputable CCM services is growing rapidly, which eases the administrative burden on primary care physicians. Outsourcing care management services reduces the burden on providers and ensures specialists run them perfectly.
