ChronWell – RPM Launch Release FORT LAUDERDALE, FL. – July 9, 2020 – ChronWell, a technology-enabled remote care management company, today announced the addition of its Remote Physiologic Monitoring (RPM) services. The goal of the new program is to closely monitor progress and improve patient adherence to treatment plans, reduce complications and help practices deliver better care while optimizing costs. ChronWell RPM services will initially focus on patients with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and IBD (inflammatory bowel disease). Through digital collection tools, including wearable monitoring devices, mobile apps, secure messaging, and surveys, ChronWell’s RPM services will monitor patient health data, assess their chronic condition(s) and offer providers the ability to adjust treatment plans. Health data can include weight change, stool frequency and characteristics, appetite, fever or other indicators for change in disease and symptom progression. “Specialists need better ways to get closer to patients, especially in these times of isolation,” said Joe Rubinsztain, MD, CEO of ChronWell. “With RPM we can expand our specialty protocols to better manage complex conditions like IBD without inconveniencing patients.” When using RPM to monitor patients outside the practice, providers can more appropriately assess risk and decide which patients benefit most from conservative measures or more aggressive interventions, leading to better outcomes, lower system cost and higher patient satisfaction. ChronWell’s RPM services are part of a comprehensive care management program that also includes Chronic Care Management (CCM), Principal Care Management (PCM) and Transition Care Management (TCM) services.

Extends clinical services beyond the walls of the doctor’s office by creating and implementing remote, specialty care management programs for patients with qualifying conditions

ChronWell, a technology-enabled remote care and injury management company, today announced the addition of its Care Management Program which focuses on targeted populations by offering remote, technology-enabled products and services, including Chronic Care Management (CCM), Principal Care Management (PCM) and Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM). The program brings new lines of revenue to physicians and improves outcomes for Medicare and selected private beneficiaries with chronic conditions.

“COVID-19 accelerated physician adoption of remote care programs,” said Joe Rubinsztain, CEO of ChronWell. “Expanding our proven platform to help physicians and nurses deliver better care was only natural. We are thrilled to offer practices a faster way to restart with remote solutions that are in line with the new healthcare environment.”

Most patients with chronic conditions spend less than a few hours per year with their physician. ChronWell extends that care through dedicated care managers and advanced technologies that consider all aspects of a patient’s ecosystem – from health and diet to a multitude of behavioral, psychological and environmental determinants – in order to create a patient-centric program of remote care management services designed to minimize complications, improve outcomes and reduce costs.

ChronWell’s Care Management Program provides value to physicians by helping manage and improve the health of patients with chronic conditions and extending the care beyond the office visit with innovative solutions designed to deliver value-based care and attractive revenue opportunities.
