Peninsula Regional Medical Group of the Peninsula Regional Health System announced today it is expanding its partnership with CareSync™, an industry leader in chronic care management, to provide expanded care coordination services to eligible Medicare patients in six family medicine and specialty offices.
Through this partnership, CareSync is able to provide patients with telephone and online access to clinical health assistants, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year. The CareSync team will answer healthcare questions day or night, schedule medical appointments or transportation to doctor’s visits, and help patients stay on track with medications, treatments, and doctor instructions through regular check-ins and reminders.
This month, Peninsula Regional Family Medicine Snow Hill, Peninsula Regional Family Medicine Ocean Pines, Peninsula Regional Pulmonology and Critical Care and Peninsula Regional Diabetes and Endocrinology will join family medicine offices in Millsboro and Laurel, DE that have been operational with CareSync as pilot offices for the past four months. Peninsula Regional Family Medicine Salisbury will add CareSync in April.
“Peninsula Regional Medical Group seeks to support patients in any way possible,” said Travis Bond, CEO of CareSync. “By choosing CareSync to act as an extension of their practice and implement care coordination services on their behalf, PRMG is providing patients with optimum care and support even when they can’t be in the doctor’s office.”
“We are excited about our partnership with CareSync,” said Thomas DeMarco, MD, Vice President of PRMG. “They have a wealth of experience and expertise in chronic care management that will greatly benefit our patients in supporting our goal of improving the health of our community.”
