The overarching goal of chronic care management is to help patients achieve a better quality of life through continuous care and management of their conditions. In a chronic care management program, a patient might have reduced pain and stress, increased mobility and physical fitness, and better sleep and relaxation.
Chronic care management offers additional help managing chronic conditions like arthritis, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, osteoporosis, and mental health and other conditions. This includes a comprehensive care plan that lists your health problems and goals, other health care providers, medications, community services you have and need, and other information about your health. It also explains the care you need and how your care will be coordinated.
At Winter Park Family Physicians we will ask you to sign an agreement to provide this service. If you agree, we will prepare the care plan, help you with medication management, , give you support when you go from one health care setting to another, review your medicines and how you take them, and help you with other chronic care needs.
