What is chronic care management (CCM)?

CCM is a system that helps you monitor and maintain your health between your regular doctor visits at Prima Medicine. If you have one or more chronic conditions, health monitoring is vitally important. Preventing problems or taking fast action in the early stages can save your life. 

 

The Prima Medicine CCM program is specially designed to help you keep track of your health and keep your doctor up to date regarding your needs at all times.

What does chronic care management include?

CCM at Prima Medicine gives you easily accessible tools to stay healthy and be proactive about your wellness. Your CCM program offers the following benefits:

 

  • A customized care plan to improve your health
  • Phone check-ins 1-2 times a month with Medsien (the CCM program provider)
  • Access to a dedicated phone line for Prima Medicine CCM patients
  • Access to a care coordinator who can alert your doctor to any medical needs 

 

Some types of chronic conditions may require additional special monitoring. 

 

If you have diabetes, for example, you may qualify for the remote patient monitoring (RPM) program. In this case, a medical device like a glucose monitor sends regular updates to your program coordinator and medical providers.

 

CCM gives you round-the-clock access to medical care, so you’re never left waiting and worrying if you encounter a possible issue. 

 

Participating in the Prima Medicine CCM program can help you manage your chronic condition in a convenient way for you. This ultimately helps you avoid hospital stays and ER visits.
