Caremerge creates chronic care management tool

Caremerge Inc. has launched its Chronic Care Management Solution, designed to tackle the new Medicare Chronic Care Management reimbursements as set forth by the Affordable Care Act.

The new Medicare reimbursement code under the ACA focuses on patient wellness across the entire continuum of care, Caremerge said. The Caremerge Chronic Care Management Solution will provide physicians with an easy, user-friendly tool that can streamline care coordination in-house. It should eliminate the need to pay outside providers to treat CCM patients while ensuring personal attention and reimbursement from Medicare, the company said.

“Creating the CCM solution was a natural extension of our care coordination network. We already serve seniors and this simply extends our reach to widen the circle of communication among physicians, staff, patients and families. ” said Asif Khan, Founder and CEO of Caremerge.
