Chronic Condition Management

eQHealth Solutions defines Chronic Condition Management as a program designed to target members with specific chronic health conditions. The goal is to improve their health and functional ability by providing condition self-management education, coordinating community resources, addressing all co-morbidities and psychosocial issues that may be affecting the member’s capacity to manage their own health.

Whether the member has one or multiple chronic conditions, is newly diagnosed or has been identified through a formal population health management predictive modeling effort, the Chronic Condition Management Program can provide the additional tools and resources for improved health outcomes. The program focus is holistic management of all the member’s chronic health conditions and psychosocial barriers. 

Core Program Elements:

  • Stabilizing chronic health conditions
  • Producing a clear, practical member plan of care that addresses their healthcare needs and lists specific goals in conjunction with the physician
  • Developing a self-management plan
  • Coordinating multiple care team members ensuring continuity of care
  • Coordinating needed community resources
  • Member empowerment through the use of Motivational Interviewing, Stage of Change Theory and Social Learning Theory

Why Adopting a Chronic Condition Program is Important for Your Organization?

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about half of all adults—117 million people—have one or more chronic health conditions. And one of four adults has two or more chronic health conditions1. Seven of the top 10 causes of death in 2010 were chronic diseases. Two of these chronic diseases—heart disease and cancer—together accounted for nearly 48% of all deaths3. And, 84% of all health care spending in 2006 was for 50% of the population who have one or more chronic medical conditions2. These are staggering statistics that affect us all.  For organizations, keeping their members’ chronic conditions under control is essential for quality outcomes and financial success.  Adopting a program to address, educate and empower members on managing their conditions will create sustainable behavior change with lasting results.
