Chronic Care Management and Remote Patient Monitoring Benefits

Most chronic patients might feel a little overwhelmed by the new informational, digital society we live in. A certain fear of novelty is perfectly justified, especially if you have been used to the old-school doctor-patient relationship. Chronic Care Management and Remote Patient Monitoring may indeed be novel in the fact that they can be largely performed remotely, with face-to-face visits only when needed. It’s like the relationship with your children and family: even if you don’t get to see each other every day, you still call to see how they are doing. This type of “checking in” is part of what we propose through CCM and RPM. It is a way to offer patients guidance and surveillance, to make sure they are safe at all times.


Enrolling into Care Management services has the following benefits for patients:

  • Have your own dedicated care team keep track of your progress
  • Be an active part in your treatment plan
  • Learn to self-manage and monitor your own condition
  • Chronic Care Management and Remote Patient Monitoring are proved to be effective in the early detection of negative health trends
  • Acute conditions are easier to predict and prevent
  • Less hospitalization days – if we catch negative health signs before they kick in, hospitalization may not be necessary
  • Save time and effort with new technologies that don’t always require face to face contact



Profit Calculator Assumptions: 40% of total Medicare patients enrolling is based on (i) Medicare Chart Book’s data showing that ~68% of medicare patients qualify for CCM (2 or more chronic conditions), and (ii) that ~40% of eligible patients will enroll.

For typical providers, $46.67 of net profit per patient per month is based on a Medicare reimbursement per patient per month (national average) for various care management CPT codes.
