HealthFusion’s MediTouch EHR introduces new feature in conjunction with CMS’ Chronic Care Management Program

HealthFusion, maker of MediTouch EHR, a cloud computing software solution for physicians, hospitals, and medical billing services, launched a new Chronic Care Management (CCM) module that allows for practices to track and bill patients with two or more chronic conditions. This first and only one of its kind feature is designed in response to the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) announcement of the new Chronic Care Management Benefit, which was implemented January 1, 2015.

Authorized by CMS, this program allows physicians to bill $42.60 per 30-day period for 20 minutes of non-face-to-face chronic care management activity. Physicians who currently treat senior patients, many of whom are likely to have two or more chronic conditions, may have already been performing this type of care management but now can earn additional revenue for the services.

The CCM program requires additional steps, including an explanation to the patient along with a signed agreement about the program. As a result, many physicians struggle with getting this program integrated into their practices, which could lead to a missed revenue opportunity. HealthFusion’s CCM module is designed to assist facilities and physicians in optimizing this new revenue opportunity from the convenience of MediTouch’s all-in-one EHR software.
