Chronic CARE Management

Chronic care management is a patient and primary care physician relationship involving education and medical services to help patients with chronic diseases understand and live successfully with their condition. Doctors and nurse practitioners will work with their patients to educate and motivate them to receive necessary therapies, medications, and interventions to ultimately achieve a reasonable, ongoing quality of life. Goals of chronic care management include promoting self-management, which gives patients day-to-day tools to control their disease beyond their doctor’s visit. 

Common Chronic Diseases include:

  • Arthritis

  • Asthma

  • Cancer

  • Chronic Kidney Disease

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

  • Diabetes

  • Heart Disease (Hypertension)

  • Obesity

  • Smoking-Related Health Issues
