What are the benefits of acute and chronic care management?

Having a reliable provider when you get an illness or suffer an injury means you get the prompt care you need and deserve. Getting treatment for acute injuries often means the problem is resolved without worsening or developing serious complications.

Depending on your case, much of your chronic care management may be done via telehealth, which offers convenient access to care.

What is involved in acute and chronic care management?

The type of acute care you receive depends on your complaint. You may benefit from prescription medications, antibiotics, stitches, ointments, or recommendations of how to manage symptoms at home. 

When it comes to chronic care management, your provider may help guide you in making lifestyle changes to improve your symptoms. You may benefit from quitting smoking, developing a physical activity program, or making changes to your diet.
