Scripps Mercy Physician Partners Selects Chronic Care Management, LLC as Its Chronic Care Management Provider

Support for in-between visit patient care management, quality payment programs and new revenue available to IPA member practices

Chronic Care Management, LLC today announced that it has been chosen to support the chronic care management (CCM) efforts of Scripps Mercy Physician Partners and the medical practices comprising its Independent Physician Association (IPA) in San Diego County, California. 

CCM is a program launched by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that helps drive longitudinal care management for patients with two or more chronic conditions, while providing new revenue streams to participating practices. Chronic Care Management, LLC’s technology and clinical staff platform, supports the CMS program, by enabling performance of core care management activities such as care planning, care coordination, medication management and patient assessments, and quality measure support for all major clinical quality programs.

"I have seen the value of the chronic care management program first hand with my patients. Having a dedicated team to reach out to patients in between their visits with me is extremely valuable, and to partner with a company led by an experienced care management leader in Dr. Mills solidifies a collaborative, high-value product for my patients and practice."

Beth Reed, Community Director for Scripps Mercy Physician Partners, said, “Chronic Care Management is a program that provides significant benefits for patients with ongoing medical issues. We selected Chronic Care Management, LLC because we believe they have the knowledge and experience to provide superior service to our physicians and their patients.”  

Dr. Venu Prabaker, a San Diego County internist and member of the IPA, remarked, “I have seen the value of the chronic care management program first-hand with my patients. Having a dedicated team to reach out to patients in-between their visits with me is extremely valuable, and to partner with a company led by an experienced care management leader in Dr. Mills solidifies a collaborative, high-value product for my patients and practice.”
