Coordinated care recognizes that cancer is a complex disease, requiring multiple doctor's appointments
, medications and treatments
, as well as support and follow-up care, and answers to the questions you may have along the way. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), we are committed to helping you handle these logistics, so you don't have to do it alone. That's why we developed a comprehensive care model that assigns a coordinator to each patient's care team, to ensure that your medical needs are met in a seamless fashion. This coordinator is called a care manager
, and he or she is dedicated to orchestrating your schedule, communication, education and follow-up, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The benefits of coordinated care include:
The cancer journey explained.
Whether it's understanding medical jargon, interpreting doctors' directions or knowing what to expect from treatments or possible side effects
, care managers are there to help you navigate the many facets of the cancer journey and answer questions that may come up.
Cancer is a complex disease
that requires scheduling and coordination of numerous doctor visits, diagnostics
, treatments, etc. Care managers keep track of it all, and strive to make sure nothing falls through the cracks.
One point of contact.
Having a care manager means that you have one point of contact for your medical questions and concerns. Care managers coordinate communication and appointments among the care team
, striving to avoid lapses in care and serving as the one constant who keeps everyone on the same page.
