What is Care Management?
One of the most difficult and stressful problems patients and their caregivers face is figuring out how to navigate the healthcare system. Insurance questions, scheduling appointments with specialists, arranging transportation or finding resources for follow-up home care can be overwhelming.
Telluride Regional Medical Center’s care management is a free, primary care service that helps patients manage their health and develop a care plan. It is especially helpful in complex cases for patients who have received an unexpected diagnosis, have a chronic health condition, acute illness, or disability, or for patients recovering from a surgical procedure. Our care management team includes care managers who can minimize barriers to care and walk alongside patients throughout their treatment.
