Improving patient health while reducing health care costs
Mercy Virtual offers condition management support for patients with chronic health challenges. These programs utilize Mercy registered nurses and focus on teaching evidence-based self- management strategies that help patients participate fully in their care plans. Our therapy-specific prevention and intervention programs for high-risk patients encourage compliance and lifestyle changes to improve outcomes, improve productivity and reduce medical expenditures. Patients in the program receive face-to face educational programs and are coached and screened by a nurse through regularly scheduled telephone calls.
