Comorbidity Management Q&A

What is comorbidity management?

Comorbidity management involves medical services for people with multiple chronic diseases to protect their existing and long-term health.

If you have one chronic disease, you are more likely to develop other diseases that affect your independence and quality of life. For instance, if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA), you’re twice as likely to have a heart attack than someone without RA.

Alertive Healthcare Medical Group provides progressive and innovative osteopathic care for comorbidity management. The providers focus on closing the gap in care to keep you physically active and independent for as long as possible.

Why would I need comorbidity management?

The comorbidity management services at Alertive Healthcare Medical Group are available for adults 20 and over with more than one chronic health condition requiring ongoing medical care.

Chronic conditions can include:

  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Obesity
  • Heart disease
  • Lung disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues

The providers recommend scheduling a comorbidity management consultation if you’re managing more than one chronic disease. They offer advanced diagnostic testing services on-site to assess your health and customize a management plan to your specific health needs and medical history.

What is included in comorbidity management?

The comorbidity management services at Alertive Healthcare Medical Group focus on treating existing symptoms and preventing underlying conditions from worsening. The physicians take an integrative approach to managing your health concerns to ensure the best outcome.

The medical specialists can prescribe medications that keep your chronic conditions well-controlled. They also provide medication management services to prevent medication conflicts, underdosing, and overdosing.

In addition to monitoring your use of medications, the providers help you make lifestyle and diet changes that support your ongoing health. They work closely with you to develop a proactive plan to boost your overall wellness and lower your risk for comorbidity complications, including hospitalization, disability, and premature death.

Through routine checkups, preventive screenings, and telehealth visits, the providers can identify comorbidity complications in the earliest stages and treat them without delay. They can also coordinate specialist care.
