What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management focuses on your overall health needs when managing a chronic disease.

McLean Cares offers comprehensive chronic care management services to treat many chronic health issues. They use advanced diagnostic technologies to confirm your condition and personalize a treatment plan to reduce your symptoms.

The goal of chronic care management is to lower your risk for more severe health complications resulting from a chronic disease. Your provider also ensures that your treatment works well, so you can enjoy a high-quality, physically active life.

People who participate in Medicare’s Part B benefits and have two or more chronic conditions can also benefit from the available chronic care management services. Resources are available to better manage your health and help you stay on top of your preventive care needs.

When should I schedule a chronic care management consultation?

What can I expect during a chronic care management consultation?

During your initial chronic care management consultation at McLean Cares, your provider spends time learning more about your personal and family health histories. They also assess your current health through a physical exam, bloodwork, and diagnostic testing.

To help you manage your condition, various treatments are available on-site. You might need to take prescription medications to treat conditions like allergies, diabetes, and hypertension. The team continues to monitor your treatment progress and ensure medications are working well.
