Take Control of Your Health
National data from CMS show people with multiple chronic conditions have significantly more Dr. visits, hospitalizations, PAC episodes and spend far more in out-of pocket and premium costs than those with 1 or 0 chronic conditions.
People with multiple chronic conditions account for over 70% of all hospitalizations.
If you have two or more of these conditions, you are more likely to experience frequent doctors visits, emergency room visits and even hospitalization.
- High Cholesterol
- Heart Disease
- Heart Failure
Improving Your Quality of Life
The burden of managing these conditions and interactions with the health system can have as much, if not more, impact on one’s time, effort, mental stress, finances and overall quality of life.
And despite all that effort, you can still end up with unanticipated complications, leading to hospitalizations and post-acute recovery episodes.
Who wants to be just another statistic? You have 4 conditions but you don’t have to be just another statistic.
The burden of managing these conditions and interactions with the health system falls mostly on the patient. This responsibility can become all consuming and have can have just as much, if not more impact on one’s time, effort, mental stress, cost and overall quality of life.
Living with multiple chronic conditions can be a full time job. Just scheduling (and rescheduling) appointments w/ doctors, specialists, tests, and treatments could keep a personal assistant busy!
- Keeping up with your medications and changes to your medications
- Researching and educating yourself on what you should do in your daily life to best manage your health – and what to prioritize
- Questions or concerns that come up on a weekly or daily basis
- New symptoms or changes you notice and deciding whether to wait until your next appointment to ask, or call your Dr, or even go to a minor emergency – and the stress that comes along with those decisions
- The responsibility of updating your PCP, specialists and family care givers, individually on the frequent changes in your health status and appointment results
- Coordinating travel, etc.
Managing Your Time
Managing each of those efforts take up a significant amount of your time, drains your mental and emotional energy, costs you in co-pays and premiums, and takes away from time at work, with family and friends and ultimately your QoL. And despite all that effort, you can still end up with unanticipated complications, leading to hospitalizations and post-acute recovery episodes.
Imagine if you had a personal assistant to help you manage all of this, giving you back your time, lowering your stress, helping you know what to focus on to manage your daily health, escalating concerns so your Dr.’s can intervene when they need to and avoid unnecessary health system encounters and resulting costs to you?
- Reduce the likelihood of hospitalization
- Save money by having fewer associated costs with hospitalization
- Spend less time managing appointments
