Is chronic care a priority? How well is it being managed today and what barriers do organizations face?
As health systems increasingly seek to extend care beyond the walls of their facilities, a new survey of hospital and physician practice leaders provides insights into how well they’re doing, which programs they participate in, how they think care should be delivered and what their top challenges are.
This online survey of healthcare executives was conducted to understand the views of over 100 hospital and physician leaders on managing chronic conditions.

Signallamp Health, Inc., a pioneer in providing dedicated nurse care managers to chronically ill patients, announces an expansion of its nurse care team to assist patients and their providers adversely affected by the abrupt closing of CareSync.
Signallamp’s full-service chronic care management solution is the “anti-call center” for patient engagement. Signallamp’s model allows for the same nurse to work with the same care team every day and same panel of patients each month. This has proven to deliver unrivaled patient satisfaction and retention, and guaranteed monthly NET revenue for the practice without upfront investment.
The most under-utilized asset in healthcare is the physician-patient relationship. Signallamp’s embedded care managers effectively supplement this relationship by expanding the provider’s capacity to work with patients between office visits while remaining in the provider’s day-to-day workflow. On the other hand, call centers create an entirely separate workflow, and not surprisingly, patients balk at the impersonal nature of the interaction.
Signallamp has partnered with providers since the CMS launch of the Chronic Care Management program and has become a national thought leader in the space. “Those struggling with a Chronic Care Management program often prioritize technology, but you need a program that works at a human level first. Once we got that right, we built technology to maximize efficiency and extend the program to thousands of patients,” said Drew Kearney, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer.
