Chronic Care Management
Chronic Care Management is a care coordination program that assists people with chronic conditions in better managing their illness for an improved quality of life. The Care Managers at Stillwater Medical are registered nurses and licensed practical nurses who are trained to assess patient needs and make recommendations that help patients get the care they need.
The Care Manager will actively work with the patient, family, primary care physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner, and specialists to coordinate complex care. The goal is to provide compassionate and quality healthcare services through teaching self-management skills, improving communication, and connecting people with community resources.
