Our clinicians can help you manage complex health situations over the long term to help optimize your health. Chronic conditions require a long-term medical plan to keep the condition under control as much as possible. Proper diagnosis and classification will affect your treatment plan or care strategy. Although some chronic conditions can eventually be resolved with medication, surgery, physical therapy or other treatments, ongoing care must be taken to manage these conditions until treatment is successful.
Examples of conditions that require chronic care:
- Heart disease
- Heart failure
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Chronic kidney disease
To help you effectively manage these conditions, we’ve established a chronic care management program. When you need extra support to manage a chronic care condition, we enroll you in this program. This includes nursing staff who regularly checks in with you about your condition and progress, plus remote patient monitoring that reduces incidents of hospitalization and emergency room visits.
