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