Care management is a set of clinical services designed to assist a patient and his or her support system in best managing medical conditions and the behavioral and social problems that can arise from them. At Michigan Kidney Consultants, your Care Manager will work with you in person, or telephonically, to help prevent or delay kidney disease progression through a personalized care plan. Care management helps support your healthcare goals between your visits with your Nephrologist and Nurse Practitioners. Support may include post hospitalization follow up, educational materials, medication management, collaboration with primary care and other specialists, blood pressure management, diabetic support, recommendations for community resources, and advanced care planning.
