Medicare’s Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a way for your practice to keep patients as healthy as possible. As health care moves from volume- to value-based models, the AWV addresses gaps in care and enhances the quality of care you deliver. A personalized prevention plan created for the Medicare beneficiary is a way to improve patient engagement and promote preventive health care.
Mark Twain once said that “age is an issue of mind over matter; if you don't mind, it doesn't matter.” While this is true in theory, many people face increasing health issues as they get older. However, by receiving preventive healthcare screenings and services, they may be able to lessen the risk of certain illnesses and injuries.
