Amazing Charts Partners With Caremerge to Offer Chronic Care Management End-to-End Solution

Physicians Can Improve Care Coordination and Collect Additional Medicare Reimbursements

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - February 03, 2016) - Amazing Charts, LLC, a leading developer of Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Practice Management (PM) systems for independent physician practices, announced today a partnership with Caremerge, LLC, a revolutionary communication and care coordination platform, that will enhance Caremerge's existing Chronic Care Management (CCM) solution and enable physicians offices to offer their patients a higher level of care and more efficiently create electronic care plans, generate current procedural terminology (CPT) coding, and provide services required for CCM reimbursements from Medicare.

Ushered in by the Affordable Care Act and recognized by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) as a critical component to primary care that contributes to better health and care for patients with multiple chronic conditions, CCM CPT code 99490 allows physicians to receive reimbursement for CCM services at an average of $42 per month for Medicare beneficiaries. The Amazing Charts and Caremerge partnership helps physicians easily meet these requirements while improving practice efficiency and patient care via an integrated system that streamlines operations.

"Our integrated solution with Caremerge partnership is designed to help physicians handle Chronic Care Management with minimal practice disruption," said John Squire, President and COO of Amazing Charts, a division of Pri-Med. "It allows the physician's office to become a hub for ongoing care between visits, resulting in healthier patients while generating significant practice revenue for functions already being performed."

The new partnership between Amazing Charts and Caremerge addresses a significant gap in care coordination, enabling physicians to gain greater control over the care for their entire Medicare population and collect additional practice revenue for functions performed.

"We are excited to partner with Amazing Charts, a leader in Health IT technology for independent physician-owned practices," said Asif Khan, Founder and CEO, Caremerge. "Together, we provide a comprehensive solution no one else can match with a focus on bettering patient care and outcomes for the sickest and most fragile portion of our population. Physicians benefit from additional revenue, while patients with multiple chronic conditions receive better care coordination resulting in better health."
