Chronic disease can lead to significant complications if not managed properly. Disease management helps patients control health problems that could become serious if not given the proper attention. When optimally managed, the care that one receives can actually improve their overall health. Once a chronic condition is diagnosed, all of our providers can help patients develop a comprehensive plan to improve their health. We have a strong referral system to help you find the right specialist if needed.
We have created a Health Care Home (HCH) team approach to help with chronic disease management. A HCH Team is a group of health care professionals who will work with you and your family to develop a plan and deliver patient care in a coordinated way in collaboration with the patient.
The care team includes:
- The patient
- At least one primary care provider
- Care manager
- RN and may include other health professionals based on the patient’s needs.
Entira providers are able to help you manage many diseases, including:
- Heart disease
- High cholesterol
- Stress and/or anxiety
- Thyroid disease
For more information on these diseases and others, please discuss with your provider.
