According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 75 percent of our health care dollars goes to treat chronic diseases.
These persistent health care problems — the nation’s leading causes of death and disability — result in deaths that could have been prevented, lifelong disability, decreased quality of life, and growing health care costs.
Chronic Care Management works with patients with chronic diseases in a way that allows them to set their own goals and work, with expert coaching, toward solutions and lifestyle changes that decrease problems that go along with these conditions.
One such problem is frequent hospitalization or visits to the emergency department.
Many of the nurses and therapists who work with MaineGeneral HomeCare are specially trained and certified in Chronic Care Management.
