Combining Medicine with Technology

"I'm calling to schedule that new Medicare Annual Wellness Visit I read about on-line today."
Or
"Medicare sent me a notice saying I should get my annual wellness visit does your office do that?"

This is what Primary Care Practices are hearing more and more from their Medicare eligible patients. But what is it?

The annual wellness visit, which has been offered by Medicare since January of 2011 as part of the Affordable Care Act signed into law two years ago, is seen as a way to get seniors medical care upfront and avoid costly hospitalizations down the road. Its focus is Prevention.

The wellness visit is not a physical exam but a way for a doctor, or his staff, to talk to the patient and ask question about chronic conditions like diabetes, depression, tobacco use or cognitive skills. Medicare beneficiaries can also work with their doctor to develop or update a plan to prevent disease, according to Medicare's website.
