DISEASE RISK MANAGEMENT
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 the 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 are used to identify members who are eligible for registration to the Disease Risk Management Programme.
Members may also contact the DRM Programme when diagnosed with a chronic condition and request to be registered on the programme.
Once registered, telephonic follow-ups take place to:
|Provide health information and guidance to improve understanding and management of your condition|
|Assist in getting authorisation for appropriate healthcare services|
|Coordinate treatment with your treating doctor.|
|Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)|
|High blood pressure|
|Coronary artery disease|
|Cervical and lumbar spinal conditions|
|Mental health conditions: depression, bipolar mood disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and substance abuse|
