CHICAGO, Aug. 25, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cookeville Medical Center in Cookeville, Tenn., selected Allscripts (Nasdaq:MDRX) Chronic Care Management (CCM) Program to more easily manage and improve care for patients with chronic conditions while increasing Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reimbursements.
Cookeville Medical Center is an existing Allscripts Professional EHR™ client that selected the CCM program to improve engagement with patients for better management of chronic diseases. The CCM program enables Cookeville to offer patient-centered care plans with limited impact to existing operations.
The Allscripts CCM program features services from Allscripts' Professional Physicians business unit to assist care providers in reducing the complexity of caring for chronic patients, including advisory services, patient outreach, practice and claims management.
"Cookeville Medical Center's goals include increasing the availability and accessibility of primary health care services to promote better outcomes," said Navin Jain, CIO, Cookeville Medical Center. "Allscripts CCM enables us to more proactively serve an important population of patients with chronic conditions whose care is improved with ongoing, non-face-to-face contact with health care experts while driving additional CMS reimbursement revenue."
"Developing an effective CCM program can be challenging. Allscripts removes the barriers to quickly implement a scalable program that meets both the needs of patients and the care provider," said Steve Lalonde, senior vice president and general manager, Professional Physicians Business, Allscripts. "The result is better long-term care for patient and additional reimbursement revenue generation."
