Chronic Care Management Services: Supporting Your Care

The Streamlined, Compliant Way to Manage Resource-Intensive Patients

If you’re a primary care physician, you already know that patients with chronic conditions are more likely to present with time-consuming problems that put you in the role of care coordinator while keeping your office from operating at maximum efficiency.

The Lacuna Health Solution
At Lacuna Health, our chronic care management services benefit our practice partners in a number of ways:

  • Conducting monthly, non-face-to-face conferences of at least 20 minutes with these patients, helping your office meet the requirements of CPT 99490*
  • Offering a care management team aligned with CMS requirements to provide aid and navigation
  • Developing comprehensive care plans that are reviewed and approved by a practice physician
  • Effecting medication reconciliation to avoid error and support patient compliance
  • Keeping physicians notified about a patient visit to an ER, hospital or SNF
  • Coordinating with specialists as well as home- and community-based service providers

These services provide continuity of care between office visits and help aggregate clinical and patient information to create a holistic perspective of the patient’s care. We can even connect to your EHR, allowing our CCM care team to review necessary patient care information.

Experts estimate that patients with multiple chronic conditions are responsible for:
