Chronic Care Management Q&A

What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management combines patient education, prescription medication, and routine checkups to relieve uncomfortable side effects associated with chronic illnesses. If you have a chronic illness, like kidney disease or heart disease, chronic care management can prevent the condition from getting worse and help you live a healthier, more active lifestyle. 

Generations Family Practice partners with Managing Solutions, Inc. to maximize chronic care management and ensure patients receive quality consultations and follow-up visits (including virtual care) in a timely manner.

What conditions can benefit from chronic care management?

At Generations Family Practice, the team uses chronic care management to treat various conditions, including:

  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • HIV
  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes
  • Cystic fibrosis

You might also benefit from chronic care management if you have a chronic gastrointestinal issue like Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. 

What does chronic care management involve?

At Generations Family Practice, the team tailors chronic care management to each individual’s needs. Even so, they focus on three specific areas:

Patient education

Learning you have a chronic illness can be overwhelming. There’s a lot of information to take in, and if you aren’t feeling well, it can be challenging to start a new routine. Your Generations Family Practice provider can educate you on your diagnosis and provide tips, tricks, and recommendations to help you feel better. 

Healthy lifestyle changes

Even though chronic illnesses are incurable, it’s possible to minimize their effects by living a healthy lifestyle. To reduce uncomfortable symptoms and improve your quality of life, the team at Generations Family Practice recommends eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, getting plenty of sleep, and managing your stress levels. 

Prescription medication

Many chronic conditions respond to prescription medication. Following a complete physical exam, a review of your medical history, and a series of laboratory tests, your Generations Family Practice provider can recommend medication that aligns with your needs. 

Why is chronic care management important?

Chronic care management is important because it significantly lowers your risk of potentially serious complications. Visiting the team at Generations Family Practice at least once a year is an easy and effective way to stay on top of your diagnosis and prevent it from getting worse.
