Chronic Care Management
Medical Office Force has developed a comprehensive care coordination solution that combines a technology platform and care management services. Our current platform leverages existing EMR data to help providers track the non-face-to-face care they provide to patients in between office visits. For providers that do not have the infrastructure to provide active follow-up care, our Care Managers serve as an added resource to help monitor the health of patients while they are away from the clinical setting. Medical Office Force was founded by a physician.The team has added experts with backgrounds in healthcare consulting, operations, and enterprise software management.
In order to bill Medicare, providers must meet several new technology and services requirements. These services can be fulfilled by the M Force.
