84% of patients experienced improved quality of life scores
Versus 62% on routine care alone
46% of patients experienced remission of their disease
Versus 13% on routine care alone
54% of patients experienced lower disease activity
Versus 28% on routine care alone
What is Nurse-led Medication Management?
How do patients benefit?
A nurse case manager champions the comprehensive support and access to effective treatment required to achieve better health outcomes. They communicate with physicians and payers to ensure patients have access to the right medication as quickly as possible. Patients develop trusting relationships through the support they receive from their nurse case manager, who stays with them throughout their treatment journey. More frequent monitoring supports patient adherence to treatment, which is linked to improved health outcomes.
