Disease/Condition ManagementPatients who have chronic conditions such as diabetes, low back pain or depression know the difficulties and high costs of living with a chronic disease. Prairie States is uniquely qualified as a TPA who can offer state-of-the-art chronic disease management programs. Our registered nurses work directly with providers and patients to establish proactive condition management strategies that improve patient outcomes and avoid complications that occur when a patient's condition worsens.
Chronic disease management by a personal advocate
The goal of disease management is to help individuals understand and manage their medical condition. Prairie States’ Registered Nurses have the expertise and the resources to make that happen. Working within our integrated systems, our nurses have access to prescription drug and medical claims history for each participant so that they can give the best possible guidance for the best possible outcomes.
Patients benefit from chronic disease management
Intensive disease/condition management is a very important tool in an overall health management strategy to effectively improve the health status of patients. Chronic disease management helps reduce emergency room visits, hospital stays and short term disabilities. By preventing or delaying health complications, the patient can avoid the financial and lifestyle restrictions that arise if their disease worsens.
