Chronic Disease Management Q & A

What is chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management is a program of care aimed at supporting your health and well-being when you have a long-term condition.

Chronic diseases last for many months or years. Some are lifelong. Lack of health care and poor management increases your risk of complications and hastens your decline.

With expert chronic disease management from the team at HAPI Medical Center, you could be healthier and happier and live far longer.

What conditions require chronic disease management?

Any long-term health problem could benefit from chronic disease management, but ones the HAPI Medical Center team sees more than others include:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer
  • Chronic lower back pain
  • Migraines and other severe, recurring headaches
  • Kidney and liver diseases
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Some conditions, like high cholesterol and high blood pressure, don’t cause any symptoms. However, managing them properly prevents life-threatening consequences like heart attacks and strokes. In other cases, patients suffer continual pain and other distressing symptoms that require expert care.

HAPI Medical Center has specialist clinics for heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, behavioral health, and gastroenterology, as well as experts in primary care.

What does chronic disease management involve?

HAPI Medical Center’s chronic disease management programs provide comprehensive services, including:

Regular checkups

Seeing your primary care provider regularly ensures they can monitor your health and deal with any issues promptly. Checkups include a physical exam, blood tests, blood pressure measurements, and a review of your current health.

Preventive health

When you have a chronic disease, it’s important to do everything you can to stay healthy in other ways. The HAPI Medical Center team uses preventive measures, such as immunizations, nutrition counseling, weight loss support, help to quit smoking, and stress management, to promote better health.

Medication management

People with chronic diseases often take many medications. Reviewing your medicines regularly ensures you take the most suitable drugs at optimal doses and avoid unpleasant side effects.

Disease-specific tests

Depending on your condition, you might need to undergo particular tests. For example, an electrocardiogram (ECG) for heart problems or a diabetic foot check if you have diabetes.
