Epharmix has easy-to-use time-tracking tools that help providers take advantage of Chronic Care Reimbursement opportunities.
After patients are enrolled, providers and staff can start tracking the time they spend coordinating care instantly.
If a patient is prescribed an intervention, Epharmix can track time automatically when staff respond to alerts.
Even if a patient is not prescribed Epharmix, one-click time tracking tools can be used to log time coordinating care. Tasks that may qualify for reimbursement include:
At the end of each month, Epharmix generates reports for Chronic Care Management. Each PDF report contains time logs and additional information to simplify reimbursement submission.
Chronic Care Management refers to a new billing code reimbursed by Medicare beginning January 1, 2015. The primary requirement is 20 minutes of non-face-to-face time that clinical staff spends managing each patient’s two or more chronic conditions.
Any licensed member of your clinical team may provide time that counts toward the 20 minutes of non-face-to-face time.
About 70% of Medicare patients are eligible for Chronic Care Management. Patient must have multiple (two or more) chronic conditions expected to last at least 12 months. Chronic conditions place the patient at significant risk of death, acute exacerbation/decompensation or functional decline.
Up to $42.60 per Medicare patient per month (depending on the state), or $100,000 in annual revenue for 200 eligible patients.
The Epharmix system allows you to easily track time you spend calling patients and generate monthly reports you can submit as part of the CCM reimbursement claim. The reports include date, start time, duration, name of provider, and notes of services.
