Beyond the Hype, Evaluating Chronic Disease Management Solution Options to Drive Patient Activation

ECG principal Asif Shah Mohammed and senior manager Jake Fochetta are presenting on evaluating chronic disease management solution options to drive activation.

CMS’s recent changes to the 2019 Physician Fee Schedule and the Quality Payment Program allow several new billing codes to incentivize the use of technology to engage with patients. The expanded reimbursements will allow providers to be paid for remote patient monitoring (RPM) treatment services used to manage chronic conditions. The changes are expected to incentivize the use of technology to engage with patients and accelerate investments and innovations in chronic disease management platforms using RPM technology. Using a case study approach, the presentation will describe how Cone Health embarked on a new patient-centric venture to manage the care of people with chronic conditions and drove provider adoption of the technology.

  • Learning Objective One: Define types of daily clinical and interpersonal interactions patients in a chronic disease management program using RPM technology can have with their care providers.
  • Learning Objective Two: Identify the difference between traditional risk management and risk management with deep patient relationships that offer a methodology to collect, compare, and analyze outcomes from this type of initiative.
  • Learning Objective Three: State the key attributes that differentiate market vendor offerings to support patients in managing chronic conditions.
