We have program specialties with highly trained staff to include pastoral care, behavioral health, infusion therapy, wound management, palliative care, and telehealth.
CHC disease management programs are designed to target certain populations that require specific individualized care to treat their needs. The purpose of these programs is to maintain clients with complex medical needs in their homes while providing comprehensive care. These programs coordinate care for patients under the direction of their physician and provide ongoing assessment, education, and treatment. These disease specific programs include cardiac disease, diabetes, cerebral vascular disease, total joint management, falls prevention, and COPD.
