Heart Care - Introduction
Healthy Options heart care management emphasizes educating members about their health conditions and working with them to take a more active role in their health care. With the help of a nurse care manager, enrolled members will receive education to promote:
- Improved understanding of their heart disease
- Encouragement of healthy lifestyle choices
- Improved health care team relationships
- Empowerment to make informed health decisions
With these changes, members will have a good foundation to start down the road to good health and enjoy a better quality of life.
Our Healthy Options heart care management programs are designed to assist members in effective management of heart disease. This management includes nutrition, exercise, weight management, smoking avoidance and education about heart disease.
