The Stanford Chronic Care Management System


Information for Employers

The Stanford Chronic Care Management System is a cost-effective innovation that minimizes the impact of disease on the workforce. Because many large employers are self-insured for medical costs incurred by their employees, especially older workers and retirees, innovations such as SCCMS that demonstrably diminish costs while maintaining quality of care are important to their cost control.

The Stanford system helps maintain quality by reducing healthcare costs related to unnecessary ER visits and the hospitalizations that follow them in nearly half the cases.

Employers also appreciate the ongoing advice and instruction provided by SCSCCMS nurse care managers, who help to assure the continuity of care provided by physicians.
