Partnerships Further Expand Company's Ability to Provide Medical Practices and ACOs with Full-Service Medication Management and a "Turnkey" Clinical Staffing Model as Added Value to Care Management Platform
Cleveland, OH, January 13, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Chronic Care Management, LLC today announced two strategic partnerships that significantly enhance its care management capabilities. The Company, which provides chronic care management services to locations that serve approximately 200,000 chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries, is focused on adding value for patients and providers.
“Our mission is to provide a high-quality chronic care management toolkit to our client medical practices, health systems, enablers and ACOs. We are fortunate to have secured partnerships with two leading organizations that truly understand what care management means to practitioners, organizations and patients,” said Dr. William Mills, President and Chief Executive Officer of Chronic Care Management.
The Company has selected ExactCare® Pharmacy, LLC to be its primary medication management solutions provider. ExactCare, based in Cleveland, simplifies daily medication routines, promotes medication adherence and improves health care outcomes for patients struggling with chronic conditions and polypharmacy. ExactCare’s approach features custom multi-dose packaging that consolidates pill bottles into a single pack by combining doses based on administration times which is delivered to patients’ homes each month. The company’s comprehensive solution also includes medication reconciliation, ongoing refill management and the support of clinical pharmacists to ensure effective medication therapy.
“We are delighted to partner with Chronic Care Management to offer patients and their health care providers a one-stop care planning and medication management solution,” said ExactCare President & CEO Dale Wollschleger, RPh “Our organizations share an intense focus on improving the health of patients struggling with chronic conditions, as well as improving clinical and economic outcomes for providers and payers. We are confident this combined solution will deliver significant value in these areas by driving more effective medication therapy and improved patient adherence.”
Dr. Mills added, “I’ve worked with ExactCare for several years and have seen first-hand how their active pharmacist involvement and innovative packaging have positively influenced thousands of patients. By offering an integrated care/medication management product, we will together help drive further patient and caregiver engagement, goal-directed care planning and improved outcomes.”
The Company has selected MartinGale Healthcare Solutions, LLC, as a preferred provider of turnkey, clinical staffing solutions. While practices who wish to provide their own internal staffing for their chronic care management programs may continue to do so, this type of partnership will, “allow us to add a robust ‘full service’ staffing solution to our CCM platform for practices who prefer not to provide their own CCM staff”, said Dr. Mills. Dr. Mills continued, “Mike Littell and his team have a proven track record of providing value-added services to primary care organizations, effectively becoming an ‘on-the ground’ partner with practices’ wellness and care management initiatives. We are excited about the tremendous added value a high quality organization like MartinGale can provide our clients.” Mike Littell, Chief Operating Officer of MartinGale said, “We are thrilled to partner with Chronic Care Management on this exceptional chronic care management offering. Now practices who want to offer CCM to their patients but who haven’t known where to start can literally have the entire process handled via our partnership.” MartinGale also offers a number of complimentary services, including turkey Annual Wellness Visit management, allowing practices to offer their patients improved preventative care while also providing as necessary clinical staff.
Chronic Care Management’s cloud-based platform places each patient at the center of an interdisciplinary, connected care network called My Care Connector™ which synchronizes patients and their health care providers around a comprehensive, portable care plan. Built to enable value-based care transformation and a patient-centered care management model, Chronic Care Management aims to continue to work with select partners to provide practices and organizations of all types the “right fit” CCM solution. Dr. Mills added, “2016 is already shaping up to be a tremendously exciting year for the care management space and for the Company. Throughout the year, we expect significant month over month growth in number of organizations and patients we serve, and are well positioned in the marketplace to continue to emerge as a leading portable care planning provider.”
