Providers average of 7-10 minutes in the exam room with each patient, and even then, the electronic health record (EHR) receives some of the attention.
When patients have multiple chronic diseases, it's improbable - within 7-10 minutes - to adequately educate them on their chronic conditions, medication adherence, plan of care, care coordination among all providers, and help them create goals.
The Risks of Low Engagement
Lower patient engagement is linked to higher rates of ER visits and re-hospitalization as well as less compliant with medications and treatment plans. While 28% of low-activated patients will be readmitted within 30 days of discharge, that number is significantly less at 12.8% for patients who are more involved in their treatment plan.

How We Engage Your Patients
Our Care Coaches utilize proven clinical, behavioral, and educational principles along with advanced communication skills training to ensure better interaction with patients and providers.
Managing chronic diseases requires a fundamental shift in thinking, from a reactive model - treating patients mainly when they become sick or enter your exam room - to a proactive model focused on prevention and wellness before sickness occurs. This approach requires meaningful communication to patients beyond your exam room - and on a regular schedule.

The Future of Medicare Payments
You Can't Do CCM With Your EHR/EMR
By using predictive analytics, patients with "low", "medium", "high", and "rising" clinical and financial risks are indentified. By combining risk scores with other medical and scientific data, our Care Coaches will trigger personalized preventative plan services and other necessary treatments and/or testing procedures in a systematic way to support regular Doctor office visits. By managing each patients personalized care plan and prioritizing interventions -- all within a single workspace -- Providers gain a 360 degree view of each patient, guiding better decisions at the point of care.
