MediQHome Chronic Disease Management
Program Helps Doctors and Patients
If you can keep your chronic condition under control, you'll spend less time in medical facilities and more time participating in life. That's why BCBSND created a chronic disease management program called MediQHome.
You may never hear MediQHome called by its name in the doctor's office, but it's there, helping doctors collaborate in the care they provide their patients.
A big part of MediQHome is a software system we've provided to doctors across the state, allowing them to:
- Notify you when you are due for specific tests related to your condition
- Securely share important information with others who are involved in your care
- Provide clear instructions on what to do when you leave the office
- Reduce medical errors that result from not knowing about the care other providers have given
Who Can Participate in MediQHome?
Anyone can participate; it's included in your BCBSND membership. In fact, if you are diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions, you can automatically take advantage of this program.
- Chronic heart failure
- Coronary artery disease
- Diabetes mellitus
MediQHome also alerts your care providers when you are due for breast, cervical or colorectal cancer screenings and immunizations.
