LVM Change Pricing For Disease Management Plans

LVM SystemsLVM Systems, Inc. announced a change in their pricing model for disease management care plans.  Effective February 1, all plans are available at no additional cost to LVM customers.  This includes Heart Failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Asthma, Diabetes, Coronary Artery Disease, and Medication Compliance.

According to Les Mortensen, President of LVM Systems, “The majority of our call center customers have disease and population management projects on their horizon.  It’s a “must do” for successful healthcare reform and medical home initiatives.  We want our customers to have the advantage of medically-sound care plans which reference the national guidelines and support medical standards of care.”

Each care plan contains a stratification tool to assist care teams in matching the right intensity and frequency to the needs of each program participant.  The plans focus on self-management education and early identification of health status changes which are key to avoiding unplanned care and emergencies.  Customers can use the patient education materials authored by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), which exist in the LVM software, or they can link to their own materials.
