Health and Wellness Programs

 

GHC offers comprehensive population health management programs for members which include complex case management and disease management. The goal of each of these programs is outlined below.

Complex Case Management

The goal of case management is to make sure you are getting the care that you need to be as healthy as possible. Your case manager will work with you and your providers to understand your health goals and help coordinate services to reach these goals. In addition, your case manager will educate you on treatment options, provide resources, answer questions, and help you stick to your plan of care. Case managers will also help you manage any chronic conditions you have such as diabetes, asthma, COPD, heart failure, anxiety, depression or substance abuse.
