Chronic Care Management Q&A

What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management refers to the long-term attention your healthcare team gives to one or more persistent conditions. Chronic conditions typically last for 12 months or longer and require regular care to minimize symptoms and promote recovery.

Many patients seeking chronic care management have multiple conditions lasting for at least 12 months. Properly managing a chronic illness often results in fewer complications and improved quality of life.

Which conditions require chronic care management?

Many conditions require chronic care management to keep them under control and prevent the worsening of symptoms. You will qualify for this benefit if you have two or more of the chronic conditions listed below:

  • Diabetes mellitus (high blood sugars)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Heart diseases all kinds
  • Strokes and paralysis of any kind and from any cause
  • Alzheimer’s disease and dementia from any cause

How are chronic conditions managed?

The Comprehensive Medical Group of Kern Inc team offers remote patient monitoring to help patients stay on top of their chronic conditions. This technology is another part of chronic care management in which your health care team at CMG can provide you with a computer tablet with a built-in WiFi connection to track your disease.

You will also be equipped with a blood pressure monitoring device, a blood sugar testing device, a weighing machine, oxygen saturation testing, and other tools as needed.

Your health data gets entered into the tablet via Bluetooth and is securely transmitted to your health care team, allowing them to manage your conditions better and keep them in control. Remote patient monitoring is also a covered program by Medicare.
