PREVENTION PLUS PROFESSIONAL
Statistics show that only between 10-13% of Medicare patients have had their Annual Wellness Visit. Why is that? Most practices do not have the staff or the time and the cost vs. benefit is simply not strong enough.
Physicians are constantly struggling to keep up with growing demand in the face of shrinking reimbursements. In an effort to combat shrinking reimbursements, to stay ahead of shifting healthcare policy and ensure the survival of their practice, doctors are scratching their heads and crossing their fingers trying to solve this dilemma.
Medicare, long criticized for kicking in only once people got sick, in 2012, started paying primary care physicians to talk to their senior citizen patients once a year about staying healthy. This is the Annual Wellness Visit
PPP has created an innovative and comprehensive solution that both improves patient care and outcomes as well as providing practices with a significant increase in profit with only nominal costs.
Our Prevention Plus program is anchored by the Annual Wellness Visit. However, the scope of the program goes well beyond the AWV and now provides the patient an extra layer of care. Why do we do that?
Taking this specific approach to adhere to the CMS intent to develop, deliver and update a personalized help plan to prevent disease and disability. We want to identify AND address a patient’s current health and risk factors.
We have brought together exceptional web based applications, advanced DNA technology, Chronic Care Management and a protocol to improve the health and quality of life of seniors.
These efforts have resulted in the delivery of the most efficient and effective and profitable solution for the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit.
Chronic Care Management
As of January 1, 2015, CMS has started paying MONTHLY reimbursement for care coordination services to eligible Medicare beneficiaries with 2 or more chronic conditions.
Research consistently shows that effective chronic care management reduces the cost of care for chronic disease patients while improving their overall health. Until now, providers have not been reimbursed for non-face-to-face chronic care management services.
Chronic disease patients are often left to manage between-visit care for themselves. This creates a break in communication, resulting in medication noncompliance, increased healthcare expenses and an increase in the likelihood of poor health outcomes.
While it is possible to tackle CCM alone, why would you?
We ensure that you benefit from this profit generating opportunity WITHOUT adding to your expenses, increasing providers workload or making any changes to your current workflow.
THE PROGRAM COMPONENTS
We have selected these specific programs to maximize the Annual Wellness Visit and provide the opportunity to identify and reduce critical risk factors that will lead to prevention and care strategies for beneficiaries.
Health Risk Assessment
The Prevention Plus AWV begins, for the patient, with a comprehensive Health Risk Assessment (HRA). CMS requires the HRA to collect self-reported patient information. Our cloud based, HRA software is fully compliant with CMS guidelines.
(CMS Bulletin 7079)
According to the Journal of American Geriatrics, as high as 76% of dementia and pre-dementia patients go undiagnosed in the primary care setting.
Medicare Chronic Care Management requires a care plan that includes a cognitive, psychosocial and functional status of the patient to be enrolled in this program.
