The SymphonyCare Difference
At SymphonyCare our mission is to help payers and providers manage financial risk, improve quality outcomes, and enhance patient engagement by managing the care plan between visits and making valuable intelligence available at the point of care. We combine a leading-edge technology platform and managed care services to manage populations under capitation, improve quality ratings, prevent avoidable hospitalization, and reduce readmissions and ER visits. Our solutions are designed for IDNs, ACOs, hospitals, physician groups, Medicare Advantage Plans and Medicaid pay-for-performance plans. Our care management services are broadly categorized as Chronic Care Management (CCM), Transitional Care Management (TCM), and Population Health Management (PHM). We help increase revenue and improve patient satisfaction leaving more time for physicians and clinical staff to care for the patients. Our model significantly reduces your up-front capital costs, brings efficiencies, and offers tight integration with your onsite care professionals.
Designing the Blueprint for Better Care Management
SymphonyCare helps clients navigate trends in technology, workflow, and regulation to design care management programs that maximize value-based reimbursements and minimize the cost of appropriate interventions. We will walk you through the latest developments in healthcare to determine the best path forward in managing and engaging at-risk and high-utilization patients.

New Opportunities in Chronic Care Management
In 2017, CMS has made the opportunity far more enticing for providers to increase the reimbursement of CCM services by expanding the group of reimbursable services under new CCM-based codes, as well by relaxing some of the requirements for such reimbursement. As a result, providers have plenty of opportunities to benefit from expansion of valuable CCM services through their staff or through competent partners.
