Physician Leadership, Quality Care, Community Focus

Disease Management

CHN has a staff of registered nurses who will work closely with you and your doctors to provide you with valuable information about your condition, including ways to monitor progress and prevent complications.  CHN Disease Self Management Programs focus on education and self-management strategies, with a goal of improving overall health and promoting the best quality of life.  These programs do not replace your physician’s care.  They are designed to complement your doctor’s care, reinforcing recommendations so you stay healthier between office visits.  The programs are offered at no extra cost to you and participation is completely voluntary.

Features of the programs are based on individual specific health issues and may include:
  • Monthly phone assessment interviews from a Registered Nurse Care Manager
  • Educational Mailings
  • Referral to community resources
  • Referral to informative websites

Each program has hurdles to self-management success.  Upon conquering all of the hurdles, you may qualify for additional incentives such as physician office visit co-payment reimbursement.
