Disease Risk Management

/
Disease Risk Management Programme
POLMED’s Disease Risk Management (DRM) Programme aims to ensure that members receive health information, guidance and management of their conditions, while at the same time encouraging compliance to treatment prescribed by their medical practitioner. Members who are registered on the DRM Programme and who have registered chronic medication will receive a Care Plan that contains authorised medical services such as consultations, blood tests and radiological tests related to the management of their conditions.

Claims data for chronic medication, consultations and hospital admissions is used to identify members who are eligible for automatic enrolment on the Programme.
