Payoffs from Patient Care Plans and Goal-Setting in Chronic Care Management

Debra BurbaryWhen Arcturus Health Care did the math, CMS’s new Chronic Care Management (CCM) code added up to a potential $100,000 per month in revenue for its four physician practices, or $1 million annually. Having successfully billed Medicare for a half dozen patients enrolled in CCM, Arcturus’s Clinical Quality Assurance Manager Debra Burbary, RN, outlines development of the patient care plan and establishment of patient goals—two CCM requirements facilitated by Arcturus’s electronic health record (EHR).

During a May 2015 webinar, Medicare Chronic Care Management Billing: Leveraging Population Health Management for Successful Claim Submission, now available for replay, Ms. Burbary shares her organization’s approach to care management of high-risk patients and billing for chronic care management.
