Chronic Disease Management Q & A

What is chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management includes various medical services to address chronic health conditions. These conditions typically last six months or longer and can negatively impact your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Many chronic diseases can progress and cause complications without proper management, including premature death.

Next Direct Primary Care offers comprehensive chronic disease management services. The experienced medical team also makes preventive resources available to lower your risk of developing a chronic health condition.

When should I schedule a chronic disease management appointment?

You may be a candidate for the chronic disease management services available at Next Direct Primary Care if you already have a diagnosis for conditions like:

  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

The experienced medical team can use in-office diagnostic tests to assess your health and confirm your diagnosis if you need to identify the cause of pain or other symptoms of chronic disease.

Preventive screenings are also available on-site for those at high risk for chronic disease because of their family history, age, or existing health.

What is involved in chronic disease management?

During your initial evaluation at Next Direct Primary Care, the medical specialists review your personal and family health histories and any symptoms you have. They also complete a comprehensive physical exam and may order blood work or other diagnostic tests.

Based on your test results, your provider discusses treatment options for you. They can prescribe medications to relieve pain, control diabetes, or lower blood pressure. The providers may also recommend lifestyle and diet strategies you can use to keep your condition well-controlled.

Intravenous (IV) therapy is also available in the office to enhance your overall wellness. The providers can personalize a therapy plan using the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients you need to maintain good health.

During follow-up visits in-office and through the online telemedicine platform, the team continues to monitor your progress with treatment. They can adjust your care plan to keep you healthy, active, and independent.
