(Greenville, South Carolina) – April 21, 2020 – ChartSpan, the largest, managed chronic care management vendor in the U.S., has announced a partnership with the Community Health Center Association of Mississippi (CHCAMS), a nonprofit membership organization of twenty-one Community Health Centers (CHCs) throughout Mississippi.
CHCAMS’ centers provide healthcare for more than 308,000 underserved patients in Mississippi. ChartSpan’s chronic care management (CCM) services provide an extra level of care to patients in-between regularly scheduled appointments, which is especially helpful to practices in more rural areas who struggle with resources and funding. A partnership between ChartSpan and an organization like CHCAMS provides the opportunity to extend preventive patient care to rural and urban areas in need of additional healthcare.
“We are thrilled to add CHCAMS as a valued partner in Mississippi, especially during the current COVID-19 outbreak,” said ChartSpan CEO, Jon-Michial Carter. “We know that our services can truly make a difference for patients’ lives during these difficult times and are looking forward to helping practices throughout Mississippi.”
”Community Health Centers are on the frontline of defense during the COVID-19 global pandemic by providing screening and testing for the virus,” said Janice Sherman, CEO of the Community Health Center Association of Mississippi. “This new partnership with ChartSpan helps us provide support to our community health center members in delivering quality, value-based healthcare to all Mississippians.”
