TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CareSync, the leading provider of software and services for chronic disease management, today teamed with NextGen Healthcare, a leading provider of healthcare information systems, services and connectivity solutions, to provide NextGen Healthcare’s customers with chronic care management (CCM) technology and services. Leveraging CareSync CCM, NextGen Healthcare’s customers can now use CareSync CCM, enabling them to more easily meet the requirements for Medicare’s CCM program and enhance care coordination and patient care, especially for those with chronic conditions.
CareSync CCM is now integrated into the NextGen® Ambulatory EHR, giving providers virtual access to nurses who can perform the care coordination services required by Medicare’s CCM program, including creating, updating and sharing comprehensive care plans with patients, caregivers and other providers. By making it easier for providers to perform and bill CCM services, CareSync will enable NextGen Healthcare’s customers to enhance patient satisfaction and increase profitability in today’s shared-risk reimbursement environment.
“As 86 percent of today’s healthcare costs can be attributed to chronic disease, practices are increasingly looking for more proactive and effective ways to care for these higher-risk patients,” said Michael Lovett, executive vice president and general manager at NextGen Healthcare. “The partnership with CareSync bolsters our ability to give customers the resources needed to coordinate the best care possible for patients, which ultimately strengthens their unique value-based care goals.”
“It’s difficult for many physicians to measure outcomes or determine the appropriate level of care a patient needs if they don’t have ready access to information from his or her other healthcare providers or data gathered between visits,” Travis Bond, founder and chief executive officer at CareSync, said. “With CareSync, NextGen Healthcare’s customers can now more easily close these care gaps by building a longitudinal healthcare record. This is a win-win for everyone: better outcomes at lower costs for practices and happier, more informed patients.”
CareSync CCM will be available to all NextGen Healthcare and HealthFusion customers beginning March 1, 2016. To learn more about the partnership, visit CareSync at booth #147 or NextGen Healthcare at booth #4421 at HIMSS16.
