FACT: 3 out of 4 Americans over 65 suffer from multiple chronic conditions1, and 75% of primary care visits are for patients with chronic conditions2
Medicare patients with multiple chronic conditions need care coordination between office visits—to ensure they’re keeping their appointments and to make appointments more productive, to help improve compliance and self-care support, and to track progress.
Quest Diagnostics is now offering a solution that can help you extend care beyond your office setting to effectively manage these patients. Quest Chronic Care Management (CCM) Services are designed to help you minimize disruptions, save staff time, comply with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reimbursement requirements, and improve health outcomes.
