Care Management for Chronic Conditions
The care team at Avance Care is prepared to help patients with all types of chronic disease. A chronic condition requires ongoing treatment and monitoring; in other words, there is no cure. Many patients with chronic illnesses have multiple conditions. Our approach to chronic care management rests on a healthy patient-doctor relationship.
Our medical providers who treat chronic disease strive to educate patients and provide ways for patients to self-manage their disease. Many aspects of self-care are emphasized, such as nutrition, emotional health, sleep quality, and overall well-being. Our providers are committed to spending sufficient time with each patient to address health concerns in depth and provide the best possible care.

Chronic disease management works best when a patient and doctor can work together with the support of a chronic care management team. At Avance Care eligible patients with a chronic condition are connected with a care manager who is an important part of your care team, helping improve patient outcomes and reduce the instances of unnecessary or expensive medical services. Having a care manager to contact who understands the complex healthcare system and your unique condition can make all the difference. This could be the difference between a weekend at home with your family or hours (or even days) at the hospital.
