ChronWell, a technology-enabled remote care management company, today announced its partnership with GastroIntestinal Specialists, A.M.C. (GIS), the largest independent gastroenterology group in Northwest Louisiana. Through this partnership, GIS will provide its Medicare beneficiaries with ChronWell’s remote Care Management Program to stay in-touch and on track with their unique care plans between office visits.
GIS’ Care Management Program offerings will include ChronWell’s Chronic Care Management (CCM), Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Principal Care Management (PCM) products, with the objective to grow the relationship and offer additional products from the program suite over time.
ChronWell’s program enables its experienced care navigators to work closely with the GIS medical staff to remotely manage patients in between visits through real-time monitoring via digital collection tools and routine check-ins. The care navigators will be available to answer questions, provide tips and education, guide the patient through their personalized care plan, and offer providers the ability to intervene and adjust treatment plans without the patient needing to come into the office outside of normal visits. This will lead to better outcomes, lower system cost and higher patient satisfaction.
“Now, more than ever, patients need personalized care without having to leave their homes,” said Joe Rubinsztain, MD, CEO of ChronWell. “GIS is an industry leader combining high-quality comprehensive gastrointestinal medicine with advanced research capabilities. Our partnership will extend GIS’ excellence beyond the practice to improve patient outcomes and quality of life.”
GIS is the largest independent gastroenterology group in Northwest Louisiana. Its 15 physicians and 11 mid-level practitioners are dedicated to providing personalized care for patients experiencing problems related to the digestive tract. Headquartered out of its state-of-the-art Shreveport Endoscopy Center, GIS operates three additional offices and a clinical research center, the Louisiana Research Center, in the area. GIS has hospital affiliations with Christus Highland, Overton Brooks VA Medical Center and Willis-Knighton Medical Center.
“ChronWell’s solution aligns perfectly with the patient engagement strategy of GIS. Remaining healthy, compliant and informed at any place, any time is the proverbial win-win,” said Dr. David Philips, MD at GastroIntestinal Specialists, A.M.C. “The care plans are tailored by us for specific gastrointestinal disease states and delivered by trained Care Navigators. We are excited to join a well-oiled machine like ChronWell.”
