MedAxiom, the nation’s leading cardiovascular healthcare membership organization and performance community, is excited to announce its industry partnership with ChronicCareIQ, a Connected Care Platform that proactively engages patients through remote monitoring, alerts you to patients requiring attention and automates Medicare compliance.

“We are honored to partner with ChronicCareIQ as a Chronic Care Management (CCM) and Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) provider for our membership,” said Joseph Sasson, Ph.D., EVP at MedAxiom. “This technology gives physicians and medical staff more touchpoints with their patients, so they’re able to respond quickly if a patient is decompensating and more immediately attend to patients and their needs. This technology can improve patient care and lower costs to the health care system.”

ChronicCareIQ is leading the way in connected care strategies which result in better outcomes, lower costs and attainment of reimbursement through Medicare connected care codes for Chronic Care Management (CCM), Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), and Transitional Care Management (TCM). This innovation helps programs to engage patients in their own care and keep them connected to providers. ChronicCareIQis used to mitigate disease progression by extending care oversight into the patient’s home, obtain payment for work that is already being performed, boost care quality and patient satisfaction, and get real-time discharge notifications, allowing providers to perform outreach to patients in a timely manner.

As healthcare quickly moves from fee-for-service to value-based care, improving outcomes and reducing costs has become essential. Providing solutions that are easy to use for both the patient and the provider creates greater opportunity for success. Customers have reported that ChronicCareIQ’s products offer the right mix of ease and efficiency for patients and providers. 

“We have not had any patient who has not appreciated the service. We’re able to base treatment decisions on much more data than a single office visit provides, and have been able to prevent progression of the disease process earlier. Our patients feel more secure and have become more proactive and participatory in their own care,” said Dr. Brian Flowers, Cardiologist, Birmingham Heart Clinic. 

Since the launch of the ChronicCareIQ program across the country, patients report feeling ‘more secure,’ knowing the practice has eyes on their numbers. Physicians share that clients feel better cared for and that their teams are better informed.

“In this new era of value-based care, providers are responsible for a patient’s full continuum of care,” said Matt Ethington, President and CEO of ChronicCareIQ. “To be successful, that will require more than episodic awareness of a patient’s status. With patient engagement that averages between 85% and 93% on a weekly basis, our platform is the easy-button solution for true chronic care management and remote patient monitoring. Patients enjoy better health with fewer adverse events, CMS and the payers benefit from reduced costs, staff spend less time on the phone, and the practice adds new and significant recurring revenue through Medicare’s CCM, TCM, and RPM programs as well as other quality initiatives.”

MedAxiom members will have an opportunity to learn more about ChronicCareIQ at the CV Transforum Fall’19 conference, October 24-26, in Dana Point, CA.
