Medi-Code automates the workflow or process of Patient Centric Medical Home (PCMH) which allows the practices to support patient health maintenance via remote and home monitoring of patients for vitals and medication use. Based on clinical metrics it allows risk reporting of patients so that the care coordinators can take appropriate actions. Care coordinators plan the proactive care of the patient based on the risk profile generated by Medi-Code. Medi-Code integrates with home monitoring devices to ensure automatic alerts to the care coordinators and notifications to the physician as needed.
This year, CMS launched a new 99490 reimbursement code for Chronic Care Management (CCM). Research consistently shows that effective chronic care management reduces the costs of care for chronic care patients while improving their overall health. Now each month you provide these services to your patients you can be reimbursed. CPT 99490 pays about $42 each month you provide at least 20 minutes non-face-to-face chronic care coordination for your Medicare (and certain other insurers) patients who have at least two chronic conditions. About 2/3 of Medicare patients have two or more chronic conditions, e.g. diabetes, morbid obesity, hypertension, or Alzheimer’s. Medi-Code has launched a new service that will allow your practice to access this new revenue source. When you partner with Medi-Code, you earn additional money while you improve patient care without disrupting your staff or changing your workflow. And you don’t need to invest any money.
