Comprehensive Chronic Disease Management at Hawthorn East Medical Clinic (HEMAC)

A chronic disease or condition, as defined by the ‘Australian Government’s Department of Human Services’, is one that persists for at least 6 months or is deemed terminal. These conditions often require ongoing management and care to maintain optimal health and quality of life. At HEMAC, our practitioners are committed to supporting individuals living with chronic diseases through personalised and proactive care strategies.

For individuals with chronic conditions, our practitioners may recommend a GP Management Plan. This comprehensive plan is designed to provide structured and coordinated care, ensuring that your healthcare needs are effectively addressed. By outlining specific goals, treatments, and interventions, the GP Management Plan serves as a roadmap for maintaining your well-being and managing the challenges associated with your condition.

In addition to GP Management Plans, we also offer Team-Based Arrangements to coordinate your care more effectively. This approach involves collaboration between our practitioners and other healthcare professionals, such as physiotherapists or osteopaths. By leveraging the expertise of a multidisciplinary team, we can provide comprehensive and holistic care that addresses all aspects of your health.

Team-Based Arrangements allow for integrated and seamless treatment, ensuring that you receive the most appropriate interventions and support tailored to your unique needs. Whether it’s managing pain, improving mobility, or addressing psychological aspects of your condition, our collaborative approach ensures that all aspects of your health are considered and managed effectively.

By partnering with HEMAC for chronic disease management, you can benefit from personalised care plans, coordinated treatment approaches, and ongoing support to help you live your best life despite the challenges of chronic illness. Let us be your partners in health as we work together to optimise your well-being and enhance your quality of life.
