Telehealth in Chronic Care Management
January 4, 2021
10 Minute Read
- Telehealth can be used to educate patients with chronic conditions, develop and share care plans, monitor symptoms, and manage medications—all in the pursuit of better care outcomes at lower costs.
- Many patients lack frequent access to in-person care, and the number of Americans affected by chronic conditions grows each year. Failure to properly manage chronic conditions leads to worse health outcomes and costly care.
- Reimbursement for remote chronic care management (CCM) varies between payers, but both private and public payers have expanded coverage for chronic care management in recent years.
