When you’re ready to learn more, schedule a visit online or by phone.

What kinds of health conditions need chronic care management?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a health issue is considered a chronic disease if it limits your ability to get through normal daily routines, lasts for a year or longer, and requires ongoing medical support. 


Some examples of chronic disease include:


  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Depression
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Dementia


Chronic care management strives to improve your quality of life and reduce the risk of serious negative health outcomes linked to chronic disease.  

What role do medications play in chronic care management?

Chronic care management is a highly personalized process and begins with a comprehensive assessment of your current health condition. This includes reviewing any medications and supplements you take. 


Medication can play an essential role in treating some forms of chronic disease. However, finding the right options and the right dosage is not a simple process. It’s not uncommon for your provider to identify ways that your existing drug therapy might be causing more harm than good. Making alterations can yield impressive improvement.  

Can lifestyle modifications help with chronic care management?

The choices you make each and every day have an astounding impact on chronic health conditions. Making changes to your nutrition and activity levels can lead to swift and measurable improvements in your health and wellness. 


You don’t have to embrace a highly restrictive fad diet or engage in extreme exercise plans to see results. Simple changes can be effective ways to improve your health, like adding a daily walk to your routine or trying to eat more fruit and vegetables each week. 

Livingspring Family Medical Center partners with Lara Health, a resource that provides remote patient monitoring and coaching through virtual visits. This ensures you have access to ongoing chronic care management between office visits and from the comfort of your own home. 

If you’re ready to begin a path toward reduced health risks and enhanced quality of life, schedule a visit at your earliest convenience. You can book online any time of day, or feel free to call during normal business hours to check appointment availability.
