Making the Case for Chronic Care Management

The High Cost of Doing Nothing

You’re ready to start a CCM program. You know the positive impact it can have on the lives of your patients. But some people still aren’t convinced?

It’s no surprise to know that individuals living with chronic health conditions, on average, require more frequent and often more complex medical care than people who do not live with a chronic disease. The most common chronic diseases affecting the population often need consistent treatment and oversight by a provider or team. For patients relying on Medicare, this degree of continual care can result in sizable expenses for themselves as well as their providers.

It’s easy to get caught up in the upfront costs of starting a new program — the stress of researching and vetting the right solution, getting buy-in from stakeholders, finding time to even implement a new process — but what’s the actual cost of doing nothing?

This report provides a comprehensive look at the nation’s most common chronic diseases: diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), chronic kidney disease, heart disease/failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

Key information is included to help contextualize the impact of each disease. With a focus on the financial implications placed on patients, providers, and payers, this report is an essential resource to help you make the case for CCM.
