Chronic Disease Management
The chronic disease management services offered at our Questcare Medical Clinic locations help patients deal with long-term conditions. Chronic health issues are some of the most costly and common problems, yet they are also among the most preventable and controllable. Questcare physicians have the experience and tools to help patients manage a wide range of conditions.
What is Chronic Disease Management?
Chronic disease management coordinates healthcare intervention and communication. It helps to strengthen the relationship between patients and doctors while also helping to prevent complications that can worsen a condition. Effective guidelines and strategies, based on solid evidence, are used to improve a patient’s overall health.
A chronic disease such as diabetes may not be curable, but it can be controlled. Some of the other conditions Questcare physicians help patients manage include:
- High blood pressure
- Low blood pressure
- Sleep problems
Benefits of Chronic Disease Management
Chronic disease management educates patients about their condition so they and their family members can be alert to any abnormalities, helping increase that patient’s quality of life. It catches health problems early so that appropriate treatment can begin immediately before symptoms worsen.
In addition, it can also help save money by potentially reducing the need for trips to the emergency room and hospitalization. Maybe most importantly, though, it provides peace of mind. Patients, loved ones and caregivers know they have access to a strong network of healthcare professionals when they need it the most.
