Deliver Better Care to More Patients

Healthcare providers face many challenges.  They need to improve patient outcomes, reduce the cost of care, reduce complications and unnecessary re-admissions, while at the same time extending their organization’s brand.  Chronic disease patients account for the bulk of business.  Yet patient outcomes largely depend on their ability to properly follow their prescribed treatment plan and their daily health behaviors.

Meanwhile payers are migrating to value-based models that pay for performance rather than transactional volume. For this reason, healthcare providers need to engage patients beyond the point of care to support healthy lifestyle behaviors and improve treatment adherence.

With NexJ Connected Wellness, providers can meaningfully engage chronic disease patients by empowering them with skills, knowledge, and confidence to actively participate in managing their own health and wellness.

Chronic Care Management (CCM) Program from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

Since January 1, 2015 the CMS pays providers for managing Medicare FFS (fee-for-service) patients with 2 or more chronic conditions. Providers can bill $42 USD per month for each patient receiving chronic care management. Care can be billed for care team activities totaling at least 20 minutes of non-face-to-face “chronic care management services” each month, such as health coaching. Contact NexJ Health to find out how NexJ Connected Wellness can help healthcare providers optimize this new revenue stream.

Improve patient outcomes

Outcomes for patients with chronic disease are often determined by how well they adhere to their treatment plans and their daily health behaviors.  With NexJ Connected Wellness you can engage your patients and help them understand their condition and treatment plan and remember what they need to do, collaborate with their personal circle of care, and drive care plan and medication adherence.

Lower the cost of care by letting patients know what to do in case of expected or adverse events.

Emergency Room visits and hospital re-admissions are reduced when patients know what to do in case of expected or adverse events. Follow-up phone calls to your clinic decrease when patients clearly understand their condition and the steps they need to follow.  Care coordination improves when patients and their family are included as part of the team. And, Meaningful Use of health information (e.g., Stage 2 requirements) is achieved when patients receive electronic care plans.

Enhance the patient experience

Patients empowered with better skills, knowledge and confidence to actively participate in managing their own health and wellness have a better care experience. Patients achieve this with the help of effective education, tools to collaborate with their personal circle of care, and ongoing support and encouragement to achieve their goals.
