Disease Management

 

Disease Management and Shared Decision Making

Disease Management is an integrated approach to health care that identifies people with chronic medical conditions. This management program encompasses a number of initiatives designed to help you reach and maintain good health, such as supporting the doctor-patient relationship and plan of care that emphasizes the control of your disease and its complications, and use of cost-effective, recommended guidelines and self-management tools.

Shared Decision Making is a collaborative process that allows patients and their doctors to make health care decisions together. Arise Health Plan has various decision tools available to you throughout our website to use when making decisions about your health and care. You and your doctor can review the results together and get an accurate picture of the risks versus benefits of your treatment options.
