LAS VEGAS, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- HIMSS Booth 4173 -- Persivia, a provider of care and quality management solutions, today announced an extended partnership with Aprima® Medical Software to provide Persivia Chronic Care Management (CCM) services and support to Aprima EHR customers. This new capability is in addition to clinical decision support and patient education already embedded within the Aprima solution. The partnership extends Aprima's chronic care management capabilities by also delivering the services required to benefit from the CMS CPT code 99490.
Under a rule published by CMS, effective January 1, 2015, providers who dedicate at least 20 minutes of time to non-face-to-face care management services during a 30-day period will be paid approximately $42.00 a month per qualifying beneficiary – those with two or more chronic conditions.
Persivia CCM ties clinical decision support together with both quality and care management in order to provide actionable, real-time, evidence-based care management to improve overall patient care. "Providers are already reaping the benefits of Persivia Clinical Decision Support and Patient Education through Aprima," said Neil Simon, COO, Aprima. "Now with the addition of an integrated chronic care management solution, our clients can quickly get up and running with an efficient CCM program and immediately realize additional revenues."
"We were looking for a comprehensive chronic care management solution that truly impacts the care of our patients," said Theresa Campbell, practice manager of Pulmonary and Sleep Associates of Huntsville, a customer of both Persivia and Aprima. "Persivia is the only vendor that integrates clinical decision support and chronic care management at the point of care which will positively impact our patients overall care management. The additional revenue generated by the CMS CCM program is an added bonus for the practice."
Persivia's tight integration with the Aprima EHR enables a seamless flow of patient-specific clinical information between systems. As a result, meaningful recommendations are provided at the point of care which allows for the analysis of key data elements that are required for managing chronically ill patients. "Persivia delivers a proven chronic care management program increasing care coordination among multiple providers across various care settings for patients living with chronic disease," said Mansoor Khan, CEO, Persivia. "Persivia and Aprima have been working together for four years and have created a solution where Aprima users are able to access pertinent patient information captured by Persivia within the Aprima EHR." The integrated solution is key to allowing Aprima users to deliver CCM services while at the same time reducing variations in care.
