Disease management programs
When you have a chronic condition, staying healthy is often more difficult. To help you enjoy the best possible quality of life, CliniSanitas offers a variety of disease management programs to understand your condition, identify and manage symptoms and work with you to take control of your health. We offer the following programs: Diabetes, Asthma, COPD and Anticoagulation
Your path to a complete diabetes care plan starts with our CliniSanitas Diabetes Program. Our Diabetes Program offers a combination of individual attention and small-group education—all with the focus on you—and the steps you need to take get on the pathway to good health, and stay there.
You’ll start by meeting individually with your primary care doctor, who will complete a physical exam and lab work to get a better understanding of your condition. After evaluating your needs, the team will work with you to design a personalized nutrition, exercise and medication plan.
You’ll also participate in group sessions, where a diabetes educator will work with you and teach you how to reduce the risks factors that can complicate your condition. In addition, you’ll learn the latest strategies for managing your diabetes and keeping yourself on track. Some of the topics you’ll learn about in these sessions include:
- Interpreting blood glucose levels and tracking progress
- Spotting, avoiding and treating low blood glucose as well as responding to high levels
- Understanding and following your medications plan
- How to get a referral to our specialists if needed
- Taking care of your eyes, feet, heart and kidneys
- Meeting nutritional goals
- Exercising to maintain control
- Reducing stress and staying motivated
Because nothing is more important than your child’s well being, we created an asthma program focused on evaluating and treating babies and children up to age 16 with lung and breathing problems. You can enroll in this program if your little one has been diagnosed with asthma or is having problems with coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath or chest tightness.
We will evaluate your child, perform special breathing tests (spirometry) as needed and develop a treatment plan. Fortunately, asthma symptoms can be controlled when you and your child have the proper care, education, and guidance to manage their condition.
Our complete asthma management program includes these elements:
- A one-on-one individual session with your pediatrician to understand and evaluate your child’s asthma condition
- A personalized asthma management program, which includes regular checkups to track progress
- Group educational sessions where we will work with you and your child to learn how to reduce risk factors and manage the condition
- Referral to and coordinated care with our network of specialists as needed—before, during
COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is a lung disease that causes reduced airflow and breathing problems. There is no cure for COPD, but with the CliniSanitas COPD program, you can take the right steps to slow the progress of the disease so that you can feel better, stay more active, improve your quality of life and, most importantly prevent repeated ER visits and hospitalizations from COPD symptoms.
Program components include:
- A visit with a clinician who conducts an evaluation of your COPD to understand the severity of your COPD condition and risks factors affecting it.
- Spirometry testing if you have not had one in the last 12 months.
- A comprehensive self-care plan
- A medication plan
- Annual administration of influenza and pneumonia vaccinations
- Smoking cessation counseling
- Multiple Therapy sessions
- Clinician monitoring and follow up to help you improve your condition
- Referrals to specialists as needed

- Atrial fibrillation or an abnormal rhythm of the heart
