What is chronic care management?

North Suffolk Cardiology is pleased to announce the implementation of our Chronic Care Management program. Chronic Care Management (CCM) is a program that we offer to all Medicare patients with two or more chronic conditions, i.e., heart failure, coronary artery disease, hypertension, atrial fibrillation. CCM is designed to provide better care to our patients by offering remote monitoring of vital signs. These include blood pressure, weight, pulse and medication review with the ability to request a call from our dedicated CCM staff to address their concerns. This provides easier access to the team and improves communication between the physician and the patient. In addition, the patient has more control over their medical care. This program aims to be more proactive when it comes to the patient’s needs and their disease processes between appointments. Ultimately, this promotes better health and reduces the need for possible hospital admissions.

If you are a Medicare patient with two or more chronic conditions, i.e., heart failure, hypertension, atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease and you think you may be a candidate for our Chronic Care Management program, please call (631) 590-2256
