Improving Care of Chronic Conditions
Improving care of chronic conditions is a priority for health care providers, patients, and insurers. Based on the success of earlier programs designed to deliver better care for patients with chronic conditions, Partners Connected Health has launched programs for people with diabetes and high blood pressure. These two new programs help patients become more active managers of their care and achieve better clinical outcomes.
The two programs, Diabetes Connect and Blood Pressure Connect, are available at several primary-care practices affiliated with Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women’s Hospitals, and through the Partners Community Physicians Organization (PCPO) network of physicians and hospitals.
The Connect programs are being offered by nurses, diabetes educators, specialists, nutritionists, primary care physicians, and other clinical care providers to help patients better manage their diabetes and/or hypertension.
Enrolled patients upload their glucometer or blood pressure data directly from their devices from home to Partners HealthCare. This gives providers access to timely and accurate patient data, and creates an environment for more collaborative care. Patients are given a better picture of their overall health and providers work with them to manage their care without waiting for a scheduled appointment.
