Chronic Care Management

Chronic care management is a vital component in the preventive and holistic approach to healthcare. A chronic disease is defined as an illness of long duration, typically three months or more. Chronic diseases account for most of the health problems people experience and are responsible for more than 80% of all deaths each year.

These illnesses can affect any part of your body and may be caused by anything from genetics to lifestyle choices. However, it is possible to manage the progression of these diseases with education, support programs, medication and other treatments that help you live a healthy life while managing your condition effectively.

It’s important that you get screened regularly so we can identify any potential health risks early on before they become full-blown chronic conditions which will require much more intensive treatment options.
