Improve capture and close care gaps for high-value visits

Learn More

Our EHR consulting engagements include:

The Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a yearly preventative care visit offered at no cost to all Medicare Part B beneficiaries. The purpose of the visit is to identify patient risk factors and plan for future preventative service needs. This visit is well reimbursed and can be conducted by any licensed health professional or a team of professionals, under the direct supervision of a physician. While the AWV is recognized as an important benefit, 82.3% of Medicare beneficiaries did not receive an AWV in 2015.
