RVFM Commitment to Medicare Patients

RVFM is dedicated to seeing life long outcomes in our Medicare patients. We have seen many of you for years, which has allowed us to create last relationships. Although Medicare patients make up only 10% of our patient population, RVFM providers spend the most time with their Medicare patients. As we see you more often, we continue to spend time to build those relationships in order to ensure that you are being cared for properly.

Why is RVFM diligent about Medicare insurance compliance and Medicare data reporting?

RVFM’s goal is to achieve enhanced health outcomes among Medicare patients. To accomplish this , monitoring compliance and reporting data allows RVFM’s Medicare team to identify care opportunities to then provide enhanced care to our patients. Additionally, in order for RVFM to continue to accept Medicare, there are certain aspects of coordinating chronic care that must be reporting on to show Medicare that we are taking proper care of our patients.

What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management (CCM) is the assessment of mental, functional, environmental, and psychosocial needs in order to enhance quality of life among patients. Care coordinators strive to achieve improved function of patients by providing ongoing support within a given comprehensive care plan. Patients enrolled in CCM will receive monthly calls from MingleHealth care coordinators to ensure needs are being met, as well as to offer home and community based coordination among patients and clinical service providers.

How does CCM benefit patients?

CCM provides an additional level of support to patients with chronic health conditions, as well as management of patients health as a whole. This additional level of support creates a continuum of care among all professionals and specialists involved in patients care. Additionally, CCM allows for 24/7 access to address health care needs to create enhanced communication among patients, providers, and care coordinators. In addition to regular communication with MingleHealth care coordinators electronically, patients will have access to RVFM’s social worker and care coordinators in office to identify and assess needs in person.

What is Mingle Health?

Dr. Dan Mingle, creator of MingleHealth, expressed motivation and dedication towards providing better patient care, as well as the commitment to serving large and small practices. “Mingle Health is focused on improving the delivery of value-based healthcare to create better patient outcomes by simplifying data collection, quality reporting, and preventive care through a comprehensive, end-to-end quality-improvement platform”

Why does Ranch View partner with Mingle Health?

In addition to the passion RVFM providers share for our Medicare patients, RVFM aims to create a continuum of care among patients, providers, specialists, etc. RVFM is dedicated to preventative care in order to improve health outcomes and quality metrics surrounding our Medicare population. In order to continue to accept Medicare insurance plans, which is a high priority of Dr. Garrison’s, we want to create transparency in the fact that we need assistance in doing this. As much as we love and support our Medicare patients, an extensive amount of work is dedicated to coordinating care of chronic conditions. To keep you all as patients, it is necessary for us to outsource some of our work to MingleHealth in order to meet Medicare compliance criteria. We see this as an investment that will improve your health outcomes and we will be here to support you along the way!
