How Chronic Care Management Can Help

The management of chronic illnesses has become a critical issue in today’s healthcare environment. At least 50% of home health patients have at least one chronic illness, and that numbers are increasing.

Our Chronic Care Management Program includes five components:

  • A patient-centered approach that engages patients and builds relationships and trust
  • A collaborative partnership with the patient’s primary care physician and medical team that results in improved care for the patient
  • A self-management approach built on the principles of health coaching, evidence-based practice and adult education, which equips patients with the knowledge and tools needed to help manage their disease
  • The use of clinical specialists as consultants
  • Use of advanced technology that includes telemonitoring and electronic exchange of information among providers 

Our comprehensive Chronic Care Management has been proven to produce better health outcomes, including:

  • Improved health and quality of life
  • Reduced hospitalizations and Emergency Department visits
  • Reduced duplication of diagnostic tests
  • Reduced medical expenses, including drug costs
