Chronic Care Management Q & A

What is chronic care management?

Chronic care management includes medical services to treat and monitor a range of chronic diseases. The goals of chronic care management are to manage any symptoms you have and to prevent the condition from worsening over time.

Dr. Bos specializes in chronic disease management services for adults. He provides initial diagnostic evaluations to identify the type of condition you have and customizes a care plan to manage it in the long term.

Preventive care resources are also available to lower your risk for chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes that can result from an unhealthy diet and lifestyle.

When would I need chronic care management?

You may be a candidate for the chronic disease management services available at the office of Robert Bos, MD, if you have one or more chronic health conditions, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol

Dr. Bos offers advanced technologies like X-rays and lung function testing in the office to confirm your diagnosis and monitor the impact the disease has on your health.

You can also schedule visits for routine chronic disease screenings. These screenings help Dr. Bos identify early warning signs of disease before you have symptoms.

What does chronic care management involve?

During your initial chronic care management appointment, Dr. Bos reviews your personal and family medical histories to learn more about your risk factors for chronic disease. He also completes a physical exam and may order blood work, X-rays, EKG, or other diagnostic tests.

Based on the results of your exam and tests, Dr. Bos tailors a treatment plan to manage your condition and address any symptoms you have. He can prescribe medications, refer you for physical therapy, and recommend lifestyle and diet changes you can make to improve your overall health.

You can expect to schedule routine in-office or telemedicine checkups with Dr. Bos, so he can ensure your condition is well-controlled. If you need additional medical care for a chronic disease, he can refer you to a cardiologist, oncologist, or another specialist and coordinate with them on your treatment plan.
