Disease State Management

The registered nurses that clients of Gateway Health Management interact with are chosen for their experience, work ethics, the way they act, and their ability to help people through this painful process. The disease state management job that these nurses are given includes encouraging a person to keep files with them at all times that include a record of all prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, allergies, and any other pertinent information (such as illnesses). These nurses are also in charge of reviewing this list and making sure it is up to date at all times. These measures aim to lessen the total cost associated with treatment by ensuring no unnecessary treatments occur.

These nurses have many other jobs, such as helping to set goals dealing with your recovery and helping you to get into the best condition possible. This can also include disease state management, which encompasses all areas of the care process, from self care prevention, to hospitalization, to ultimately and hopefully, a full recovery. This methodology has shown to lengthen lifespan and/or slow the progression of a disease, which means that family and friends have more time to spend with their loved one while they are still acting in a way in which they would want to be remembered.
