CCM Community Resources

Why Is This Initiative Important?

With millions of Americans living with a chronic health condition, your support is critical to raising awareness about the benefits of chronic care management (CCM) services. By offering CCM services, health care professionals can deliver the coordinated care their patients need and help patients stay on track by getting support between visits.
