DISEASE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS
It’s more common today for an individual to have both a serious medical condition and a behavioral health condition. Left untreated, these conditions can lead to dramatically increased medical costs. We understand that helping patients deal with their mental health conditions is a vital part of their care. People with high rates of medical services use have a higher prevalence of depression and anxiety disorders.
Our disease management programs can help patients better manage care and patients find treatment that is much needed. Patients have access to:
- Self-screening tools to understand their health risks
- Educational materials to learn more about their condition
- Case management services to help coordinate their care and increase follow-through on their treatment
Patients with chronic illnesses — such as diabetes, hypertension and COPD — are more likely to have problems with depression, anxiety and substance abuse. Our disease management programs are designed to identify and treat these co-existing conditions early on. This can help patients avoid complications and improve their quality of life.
It’s more common today for an individual to have both a serious medical illness and a behavioral health illness. Left untreated, these conditions can lead to dramatically increased hospitalizations. Our medication adherence program can help reverse this trend — and improve quality of care — by assisting and helping patients become more aware and more in control of their behavioral health conditions.
