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 JSA Medical Group Care Manager can help you.
A Care Manager is a registered nurse or LPN 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.
