Chronic Care Management Q&A

What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management is the term for the personalized and careful medical monitoring and management of numerous chronic conditions and diseases, such as diabetes, arthritis, or heart disease.

Chronic care management is a long-term care plan, and often life-long care focused on relieving symptoms, lowering disease risks, and improving general health and quality of life.

Most chronic and long-lasting conditions can be controlled, but, in many cases, there isn’t a cure. At Agape Family Healthcare, the objective of chronic care management is typically to prevent complications and manage daily symptoms that can negatively impact your quality of life.

What are the most common chronic conditions?

Some of the most prevalent chronic health conditions include:

  • Obesity
  • Acne
  • Skin disorders
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Heart failure
  • Arthritis
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Hypertension
  • COPD
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease

Different conditions require different testing, treatments, and management.

Diabetes

Diabetes involves problems with how your body utilizes and metabolizes sugar. With diabetes, you often have excess sugar present in your bloodstream (high blood glucose).

Hypertension

Hypertension is a condition involving high blood pressure — when your blood exerts a high force against your artery walls.

Thyroid disorders

A thyroid disease or disorder refers to any dysfunction of your thyroid — the small gland located at the base of your neck that produces important hormones. With thyroid disorders, you often have too little or too much of these important hormones.

What can I expect with chronic care management?

Chronic care management gives you access to patient education, check-ups, screenings, coordinating treatment, monitoring, and more. At Agape Family Healthcare, how Beverly or your provider treats your condition depends on the type, its severity, your current symptoms, health, preferences, and various other factors.

You start with an in-depth discussion with Beverly, a physical exam, and any necessary testing, such as bloodwork.

To treat your chronic condition, Beverly might recommend certain treatments, such as:

  • Medications like pain-relievers and anti-inflammatories
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Regular appropriate exercise
  • Stress and sleep management
  • Vitamins and supplements
  • Patient education on healthy lifestyle changes

Agape Family Healthcare offers numerous valuable services, such as vaccinations, screenings and testing, and physicals.

The team at Agape Family Healthcare can help relieve your pain and live a healthier lifestyle. Beverly can also provide you with referrals when needed, for procedures like colonoscopies.
