Discover the untapped potential of Chronic Care Management (CCM) services with AAPC's customized training. CCM empowers healthcare providers to monitor chronic conditions and promote improved health outcomes. By structuring patient health information, initiating treatment care plans, and coordinating with other practitioners, providers can adopt a holistic healthcare approach, focusing on complex conditions manageable in outpatient settings and reducing emergency visits and inpatient care.
However, CCM is often underutilized, and providers miss out on the significant health benefits it can offer patients. Both CCM and Principal Care Management (PCM) services can be rendered by clinical staff under the direction of a qualified healthcare provider, do not require a face-to-face visit, and allow eligible providers to bill monthly.

Chances are, your providers are already capturing much of the data elements required for CCM and PCM, just not billing for it. If your providers spend time outside face-to-face visits, (coordinating care with other providers, presenting at tumor boards, etc.), it’s time to introduce chronic care management into your practice. Gain expertise in the following essential CCM topics:
Creating comprehensive care plans
CCM and PCM criteria
Patient scheduling and clinician workflows
Examples of chronic conditions that can be effectively managed include Alzheimer's disease, arthritis, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), depression, diabetes, hypertension, infectious diseases like HIV and AIDS, and more.
