CareCloud Wellness provides practitioners with a turnkey solution for coordinated care, enabling them to participate in the CCM program.

FREMONT, CA: Digital health offers the ability to prevent disease and save healthcare costs while also assisting individuals in monitoring and managing chronic illnesses. Additionally, it is capable of customizing medication for particular patients. Healthcare practitioners can also benefit from technological advancements in digital health. CareCloud, a national leader in healthcare technology solutions for medical practices and health systems, has added a chronic care management solution to its growing suite of digital health solutions that assist providers in improving patient care and revenue streams. CareCloud Wellness enables practitioners to participate simply in the government's chronic care management (CCM) program without expanding operations.

"Under today's value-based healthcare model, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) considers the CCM program an essential component of care for chronically ill patients. However, providers have found it difficult to capitalize on this program because participation often requires costly operational investment," states CareCloud CEO and President Hadi Chaudhry. "With CareCloud Wellness, we are giving our clients a turnkey solution that enables participation giving them the ability to create revenue opportunities while improving patient health and experiences."

CareCloud Wellness is a software-as-a-service solution that enables care to be extended to high-risk patients with numerous chronic illnesses. This service, provided at no additional cost to the provider, provides physicians with increased program eligibility and the ability to bill for in-between appointment services provided to Medicare, Medicaid, and dual-eligible patients.

"By provisioning this solution, we contribute to the better health of patients while providing practices with a digital health solution that boosts revenue and increases patient satisfaction," comments CareCloud COO of EHR and telehealth, Dr. Iram Fatima, MBBS. "We provide staffing and operations to give practitioners the confidence that their patients are well cared for."

Patients enrolled in CareCloud Wellness receive monthly calls and follow-ups from a team of committed practitioners and care managers through their provider. Care managers collaborate with providers to organize care plans that incorporate nutrition, medicine, and lifestyle factors as a comprehensive approach to chronic care management.
