Chronic Care Management (CCM) involves non-face-to-face services provided to Medicare beneficiaries living with multiple (two or more) significant chronic conditions expected to last a year or longer, and who are at risk of death or functional decline.
The primary goal of the CCM program is to assist patients with:
- assessing needed health services.
- coordinating care.
- enhancing self-management skills, health behaviors and compliance with a plan of care.
- maintaining health and functioning.
Knoxville Hospital & Clinics has CCM patients with diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, arthritis, and other chronic conditions.
Persons interested in participating in this low-cost, high-value program can learn more by contacting their primary care provider. Patient enrollment and consent is required to participate.
