About Our Sources

In early 2011, after the implementation of the Preventive Visit provision of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, two of BeneMedical, LLC's partners began to research how we could assist physicians with Annual Wellness Visits. The challenge of complying with CMS requirements to determine specific health risks from patient responses and facilitate customized recommendations led us to three primary information sources:

1. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
2. U.S. Preventive Services Task Force of The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality
3. Centers for Disease Control

Below is a generalized bibliography of sources from which we drew to create our Health Risk Assessment and Care Plan. These sources, in tandem with the clinical experience of our original paper-template users, have helped us to develop a proven method for satisfying CMS guidelines, facilitating smooth clinical workflow, and providing a customized, patient-specific preventive services report.
