Care Management

St. Joseph Family Medical Care strives to provide positive oversight and clear direction for our patients. As part of Comprehensive Patient Care Plus (CPC+) and Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) communities, we have an in-office Nurse Care Manager who specializes in providing support to individuals in conjunction of patient’s goals.

Some of a Care Manager’s patient-centered responsibilities are:

  • Manages and follows a designated caseload of patients within the associated practice
  • Provides targeted interventions to avoid hospitalizations and emergency room visits
  • Coordinates care across settings and helps patient/families understand health care options

Additional ways the Care Manager can help you as a patient are:

  • “Check in” calls to assess health care, educational, and psychosocial needs of the patient/family
  • Develop comprehensive individualized plan of care and targeted interventions (goals), in partnership with the provider
  • Self-management support (i.e. DM, HTN, Obesity, etc.)
  • Explore and resolve uncertainties about health conditions
  • Identify qualifying patient financial assistance programs for DM medications
