The Chronic Healthcare Clinic provides continuity of care for patients with diseases and conditions that require ongoing treatment, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and respiratory diseases.
The availability of a part-time nurse practitioner allows patients to see the same provider on each visit. This continuity of care enhances a patient’s ability to comply with treatment goals, stabilizes the patient’s health status, and can delay complications of the disease process, allowing the patient to remain in the work force longer.
In addition to tracking patients’ status, the practitioner and nursing staff educate patients about their disease, treatment options, and the importance of compliance, all of which contribute to stabilizing the condition and delaying complications.
