Chronic Care Management Q & A

Expert chronic care management reduces your disease’s effect on your home and work life. It also prevents incurable diseases from getting worse and helps you avoid the complications many of them cause.

The AZZ Medical Associates team of skilled, experienced doctors and nurses work closely with you to create a personalized treatment plan meeting your unique needs. They understand the challenges of managing a chronic condition and are there to help you every step of the way.

Which conditions require chronic care management?

What does chronic care management involve?

AZZ Medical offers high-quality chronic care management services that include:

  • Comprehensive health assessments
  • Personalized care planning
  • Medication management
  • Disease education
  • Self-management support
  • Routine testing
  • Access to a nurse telephone hotline
  • Remote patient monitoring

Remote patient monitoring uses devices like BP sets, glucometers, and waiting scales to provide your doctor with information about your health from day to day. They can check your blood glucose levels, monitor your blood pressure, and perform many other functions using remote patient monitoring.

Your doctor also recommends changes you need to make for better overall health. They can help you lose weight and quit smoking, which can be challenging without the right help. Your doctor teaches you stress management techniques and provides information on the best way for you to exercise more and eat a nutritious diet.

These changes reduce chronic disease symptoms and slow their progress. The package of chronic care management services available to you significantly lowers your risk of disability, complications like diabetic ulcers, and life-threatening events like strokes and heart attacks.
