ChartSpan Announces Partnership with Kentucky Hospital Association
GREENVILLE, S.C. - March 3, 2021 - PRLog -- ChartSpan, the leading vendor for managed Chronic Care Management (CCM) in the United States, announced a new partnership today with the Kentucky Hospital Association (KHA).
Through this new partnership, KHA and ChartSpan will work together to identify providers that can benefit from CCM, a turnkey, value-based care and reimbursement program, and Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) services. These services improve patient outcomes and drive significant new value-based revenue to providers – an especially important achievement right now as many patients and clinics must postpone well-checkups and traditional sick visits. Leveraging a CCM program can improve patient engagement and health outcomes while providing a predictable source of reimbursement, or income, for clinics and practices.
ChartSpan can provide their services to Kentucky's critical access hospitals and clinics as well as standard fee-for-service (FFS) and specialty practices.
"We are thrilled to announce our latest partnership with the Kentucky Hospital Association. We look forward to extending our services to their member organizations, especially during a pandemic when additional revenue and care are essential," said ChartSpan's Chief Strategy Officer, Shane Grivich.
"We are delighted to offer ChartSpan to our members. During COVID-19, we realized the importance and need for quality initiatives that can be provided remotely to help reduce readmissions and improve patient outcomes. Most agree that proactive patient engagement is the key to achieving these goals; however, asking our overburdened clinics, physicians and their staff to implement a care management and coordination program was impractical. With ChartSpan, we have an integrated and compliant solution for our members," said Pam Kirchem, Director of Hospital Services for the Kentucky Hospital Association.
ChartSpan is the largest, managed service provider of chronic care management programs in the United States. The company provides turn-key, managed care coordination and compliance programs for doctors, clinics, and health systems. ChartSpan manages patient care coordination and value-based programs for more than 100 of the most successful practices and health systems in the United States.
