Community Health Center of Snohomish Releases Article Focusing on Educating the Chronically Ill About Chronic Disease Management

(PRWEB) July 28, 2014

Community Health Center of Snohomish County (CHC), a non-profit provider of primary medical, dental, and pharmacy services, has released an article designed to educate patients about the opportunity for chronic disease management. Founded in 1983, the health center has a strong focus on providing healthcare to those of the county that face barriers to obtaining high quality yet affordable healthcare services.

The article begins by explaining that, while there are some health conditions that require only one or two trips to the doctor, other chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma, lupus, and hypertension require ongoing monitoring and more frequent office visits. The article explains that CHC believes that these chronic conditions require appropriate education for the patient, and assistance from their health center in order to achieve improved health and best possible life quality.

Of course, chronic disease management may require drastic lifestyle changes for patients and their families, whether that be in activities, diet or ability to work. The article by CHC states that they are willing to assist chronically ill patients with navigating any necessary changes in the home and in the workplace.

“Chronic disease management is to provide an additional support and source of information as patients are striving toward improved health,” the article states. “By systematically monitoring their progress and effecting changes or modifications to their regimen, patients are able to better observe changing health conditions and solve any problems they experience during treatment.”

The Community Health Center of Snohomish County is public in their declaration that they strive toward exceeding expectations and providing excellence. Individuals that are interested in learning more about this unique health care center, obtaining chronic disease management, or locating a provider within the group may do so here.
