The goals of the Initial Preventative Physical Examination (IPPE) are health promotion, disease prevention, and detection. The IPPE and the Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) are preventative services offered by Medicare, waiving patients’ deductibles and copays. It is important to realize that the IPPE and AWV are NOT annual physical exams. Instead, they are a comprehensive wellness exam that can be performed by an in-office MA that is under the direct supervision of a licensed physician.
CSO/Wellness Platform Algorithms aid clinician to identify Medicare preventative services and those additional preventative and social services that patients qualify. It prints a complete personalized Patient Care Plan for patient discussing all areas of preventative health and wellness issues discovered during the AWV visit. As well as longitudinal tracking over time. Our CSO/Wellness platform will help your Medicare patients understand the importance of disease prevention, early detection, and lifestyle modifications that support a healthier life.
