Chronic disease management in primary care in NYC
Not only are seniors burdened by chronic diseases but so is the healthcare system. About 80 percent of New York seniors live with at least one chronic illness, and 68 percent live with at least two. These patients often struggle daily with symptoms that reduce their quality of life. Our home care agency understands how to help seniors cope with these and other challenges.
What is the chronic disease management model of care?
The chronic disease management model of care refers to a commonly used system for managing and delivering care for people with a chronic disease. In this model, care is delivered within the primary care setting, with a strategy of bringing together the patient, the provider, and the systemic interventions necessary to achieve the overall goal of improved chronic disease care.
Patient self-management of chronic disease in primary care
Some older adults with chronic illnesses deal with self-management of their disease on a daily basis. This reality presents a new system of approach to chronic disease management: patient-professional collaboration that includes collaborative care and self-management training.
Self-management training is a complement to the traditional patient education process and contributes to maintaining the best possible quality of life for patients with chronic illness.
