How Does The Process Work?
First, our management program professionals will complete an assessment. This gives us the information we need about the state of the patient’s mental, physical, social, and spiritual health. From this assessment, we will create short-term and long-term care plans. We will review the adult care plan with the patient and family to survey all available options.
Once you approve the next steps, our team will initialize all of the services and programs to benefit the adult with chronic illness. Care coordination is vital to managing chronic illnesses. We collaborate with primary care physicians, specialists, and other members of the care team to ensure everyone is working for the benefit of the patient.
In a complex situation, it’s critical that communication lines between patients, providers, and family members remain open. With The Option Group, our Life Care Managers don’t stop after the first appointment. We remain steadfast patient advocates, continuing to provide managed care services and advocate for the patient and family.
