Cardiac Management Program

The Cardiac Management Program was developed to address the growing concerns of all aspects of cardiac care:

  • Prevention 
  • Special needs after a cardiac event 
  • Chronic needs of our members with congestive heart failure

Prevention of cardiac disease starts early and in many cases before there is a diagnosis of heart disease. Efforts are focused on members with diabetes (high blood sugar), high blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol (hyperlipidemia). By effectively managing these three conditions, the serious and often life threatening effects of heart disease can be prevented.

While proper management of your health after a heart attack, stent placement and open heart surgery can be challenging, we will work with you and your health care team to promote healing and make the most of your recovery.

If you have congestive heart failure, we will focus our attention on improving quality of life. By providing education regarding diet, weight management and proper use of medication, unwanted hospital visits can be prevented so that you can get the most out of your life.
