If your doctor gives you a treatment plan, it's important to follow it. Your health
could be at risk if you don't. But if something is making this difficult — like
the cost of medications, lack of transportation, not being able to find the right
foods, or not understanding your treatment plan – a HealthCare Partners Care Manager
can help you.
A Care Manager is a registered nurse who meets with you or calls you and works with
you to find solutions to any problem that may prevent you from following your treatment
plan. A Care Manager works one-on-one with you to help you learn about your medical
condition and what you can do to improve it. He or she will review with you the
signs and symptoms to watch out for, so you can keep your condition from getting
worse and avoid needing to go into the hospital when it's preventable.
If you have a chronic illness or are having trouble managing a health condition,
your doctor may have a Care Manager contact you. With the help of a Care Manager,
patients who are struggling with their treatment plans can become more successful
in achieving their best possible health.
