About Chronic Care

Healthcare can be complicated and confusing for senior citizens, especially when they are living with chronic conditions and responsible for managing them at home. There is an increasing body of research showing that regular attention, beyond the four walls of a medical office, improves the well-being of patients with chronic conditions. Their health improves with the added benefit that patients spend less time worrying about their health and more time doing things they enjoy.

Chronic Care Management (CCM) as envisioned by Medicare aims to improve upon this practice by interacting with patients on a monthly basis. This more frequent interaction can help drive behavioral and lifestyle changes and preempt costly emergency visits and hospitalizations.

OVER 133 MILLION AMERICANS suffer from at least one chronic condition. Chronic diseases are responsible for seven out of every 10 deaths in the U.S., killing more than 1.7 million Americans every year. Chronic Disease accounts for 81% of hospital admissions; 91% of all prescriptions filled; and 76% of all physician visits.
