Chronic Care Management – it’s health care’s great frontier where providers stay ahead of patients’ needs, and patients stay out of the emergency room.
If this is an expedition, nurse case managers are the ones trudging through the weeds at the front of the pack, uncovering the path for the rest of us. Their experience gives them the tools, and their training in Chronic Care Management shows them how to direct the best outcomes.
Most of Signallamp Health nurse case managers come from the clinical setting. They’re registered nurses and licensed practical nurses who have worked in emergency departments and surgery suites. They’re telemetry and delivery room nurses. They bring rich experience and deep knowledge of nursing from the physical site to remote care.
Before they’re fully integrated, Signallamp nurses get extra training through Marie Peppers Chronic Care Manager course. It’s a one-on-one program that brings skilled providers up to speed on best practices for Remote Patient Monitoring and HEDIS data abstracting.
Nurses learn to work from home, which is probably the greatest change for those who spent most of their careers in a clinical setting. They learn to be investigators, advocate for their patients and how to build long term relationships based on trust. They become the key component of Signallamp’s proven model for adding value to your private practice or health system and helping your patients achieve a better quality of life.
The conversation about outcomes-driven medicine over incident-based care started long before the Affordable Care Act formalized it more than a decade ago. While the health care law accelerated things, it’s surprising that Chronic Care Management still feels like the Wild West for most providers.
That’s because few have the infrastructure and the experience to successfully add Chronic Care Management to their service lines at scale. That’s where Signallamp excels. Our nurse managers seamlessly integrate with your practice or health system and become an extension of you; your patients become their patients.
Widespread adoption of Chronic Care Management must happen first in order for health care in the U.S. to get better, and for chronic disease patients to start living fuller lives. At Signallamp, we’ve proven that it starts and ends with compassionate, experienced nurses leading the way.
