Insufficient reimbursement hindering chronic care management, survey finds

Insufficient reimbursement is a key barrier to delivering chronic care management in the home, community or other proactive settings, according to a new survey.  

The survey, conducted this year by Sage Growth Partners and commissioned by Signallamp Health, involved 106 hospital and physician practice leaders.

More than half of respondents (52 percent) said insufficient reimbursement is a key barrier to delivering proactive chronic care management.

Physician practices (56 percent) were more likely than hospitals (47 percent) to cite this as a key barrier.

The survey also found that 35 percent of respondents said capital constraints are an obstacle.
