Answer Questions About Your Family’s Health
Better Understand Your Health Status
Not everyone has a close relative that they can speak with about questions concerning their health. Your Nurse In Touch is your health advocate who provides you with personal attention to help you better understand your health status.
Your primary care doctor is the person who is responsible for medically managing your care. Most doctors are working very long days providing care to his/her many patients and their time is usually limited. Your Nurse In Touch helps the doctor to better manage you medically. We provide the doctor with information that is important and necessary to deliver the most effective care. Your Nurse In Touch is a service that acts as a communication link between you, other health professionals that are involved in your care and your primary care physician. This is accomplished by connecting patients, doctors and improving access to a computerized care plan to better integrate the healthcare team of professionals. This enhances better care coordination, promotes patient engagement and communication among all stakeholders, closing the referral loop. Review of the patient portal results in fewer communication errors which may lead to problems with your health.
