Chronic Disease and Wellness Management
Of those who seek care at Bethesda Health Clinic a large majority suffer from one or more serious chronic diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression and low thyroid problems. As a result, the Chronic Disease and Wellness Program was initiated to address these issues. The goal of the program is to first get the disease under control through the provision of acute and chronic disease care. Once under control, our goal is to help our patients reduce or eliminate their condition through the provision of ongoing health and wellness management, including tailored nutrition and health counseling. By taking this two-pronged approach, patients not just survive their health conditions, but thrive and enjoy happy and productive lives. Over the last few years the program has also focused more attention on patients’ mental health and in 2017, Bethesda partnered with U.T. Southwestern Medical School to implement a mental screening program called Vital Signs 6. This program not only screens but monitors treatment to ensure adequate control of any mental health condition.
