Pulmonary and Sleep Associates Selects Persivia Chronic Care Management

Persivia’s Comprehensive Care Management Software and Services Used to Meet the Requirements for the CMS CCM Program 

LOWELL, MA, December 10, 2015 — Persivia, a provider of real-time quality and care management solutions, today announced that Pulmonary and Sleep Associates (PSA) of Huntsville has selected Persivia Chronic Care Management (Persivia CCM) to help them deliver the services required by the new CMS CPT code 99490. PSA will use the Persivia solution to increase engagement with patients for better management of chronic diseases. The Persivia CCM solution ties clinical decision support together with both quality and care management in order to provide actionable, real-time, evidence-based care management to improve overall patient care. 

“We were looking for a comprehensive chronic care management solution that truly impacts the care of our patients,” said Theresa Campbell, practice manager of Pulmonary and Sleep Associates of Huntsville. “Persivia is the only vendor that integrates clinical decision support and chronic care management at the point of care which will positively impact our patients overall chronic care management. The additional revenue generated by the CMS CCM program is an added bonus for the practice.” 

“In the post-acute environment, one of the largest factors impacting the quality of care is the variation in the standard of care,” said Mansoor Khan, Sc.D., CEO of Persivia. “Persivia Chronic Care Management builds on quality and weaves clinical intelligence into every aspect of patient care, including dynamic assessments, goals, and care gap alerts.  The solution is built upon our clinical decision support system, the industry’s largest evidence-based rule set, embedded in a real-time rules engine.” 


Persivia CCM is based on highly configurable clinical workflow tools that provide both functional interoperability with EHRs, as well as semantic interoperability across medical terminologies. As a result, the rules editor can provide meaningful recommendations at the point of care which allows for the analysis of key data elements that are required for managing chronic care patients. Persivia CCM is not just another PHR masquerading as a care management platform.


Also of note, Persivia will soon be releasing a Bundled Payment Management and Analytics solution to support the CMS Comprehensive Care in Joint Replacement (CCJR) model when it becomes effective on April 1, 2016. This solution will allow organizations to manage bundled payments throughout the year so there are no surprises during the end-of-year reconciliation with CMS.
