CareMore Nevada Selects Allscripts for Chronic Care Management (CCM) Program

Solution enables the improvement of preventative maintenance and long-term care planning for patients with chronic conditions

CHICAGO, May 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareMore Medical Group of Nevada (CareMore) in Las Vegas, Nev., selected Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX) Chronic Care Management (CCM) program to assist in rapidly improving patient engagement and quality of care while increasing Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reimbursements.

CareMore is an existing Allscripts Professional EHR™ client using Allscripts hosted solutions which wanted to supplement existing resources with a turnkey CCM solution to improve patient outcomes while limiting impact on existing workflows and operations. With Value-based Care Services from Allscripts Professional Physicians Business, the Allscripts CCM program can offer the flexibility of a fully scalable program.

With a well-established Medicare patient base, the practice also wanted to increase fee-for-service and reimbursement revenue within their existing patient volume. CareMore selected the Allscripts CCM program to enable the practice to leverage annual wellness visits and initial preventative physical exams for long-term health maintenance.

"CareMore's model of care includes developing innovative programs that successfully address the needs of older adults and other populations. We strive to give them only the best of care," said Raynette Howard, general manager of practice management, CareMore. "Allscripts CCM can enable us to address the growing complexity of caring for chronic patients by offering rapid patient engagement and quality-of-care improvements geared towards driving additional CMS reimbursement revenue generation with minimal risk."

"Allscripts helps practices overcome the challenges of developing a strong CCM program, which practices can use in their efforts to quickly drive additional reimbursement revenue generation, and provide scalability for the future," said Steve Lalonde, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Professional Physicians Business, Allscripts. "In addition, improving preventative maintenance and long-term care planning for patients with chronic conditions benefits both the practice and the patients who can see resulting quality-of-life improvements."
