Villa Medical Clinic in Newburg, Oregon, recently chose Allscripts Chronic Care Management (CCM) Program to start ongoing monthly outreach to hundreds of patients who suffer from two or more chronic conditions without adding staff or increasing employee workloads.
"Villa Medical Center earned our status as a patient-centered primary care home by always pursuing ways to improve care coordination and improve patient outcomes," Pam Marchand, practice manager at Villa Medical Center, said. "Allscripts CCM enables us to reach out to hundreds of patients every month to monitor their chronic conditions and proactively serve their health care needs in a managed, scalable manner."
The Allscripts CCM Program provides services from Allscripts Professional Physicians' business unit to assist care providers in reducing the difficulty of caring for chronic patients, including advisory services, patient outreach, practice and claims management.
"Many smaller independent practices do not have access to resources and time to take advantage of the programs offered by CMS," Steve Lalonde, senior vice president and general manager for Allscripts' Professional Physicians Business said. "Yet these programs, like CCM and others, will only continue as we accelerate to more value-based care programs. Allscripts plans on leading the way to bring the necessary resources and tools to make these community practices successful."
