Chronic Disease Management Programs
CBHS recognises that chronic diseases do have a significant impact on the quality of life of its members. CBHS assists by providing valuable preventative and disease management programs to members who may benefit from it. These chronic disease management programs (CDMPs), promote education and wellbeing among members who have a chronic disease or who are at risk of developing a chronic disease.
Some common chronic diseases targeted by our CDMP include coronary artery disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. Through careful management of these conditions, patients can enjoy better health, improved quality of life, reduced hospital admissions and longer life expectancy. The full list of our CDMPs are as follows:
- Diabetes Action Program
- Mental Health Program
- Healthy Heart Program
- Bone Health Program
- Risk Factor Management Program
- Integrated Care Program
- Heart Failure Program
- Vascular Health Program
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Program
CBHS works with specialist clinical providers such as Registered Nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists or Mental Health Nurses to deliver these phone-based self-management programs. Our CDMPs focus on education to help members make better decisions about lifestyle and disease management. They cover everything from early symptom recognition to future health goals. You can find out more about our CDMP’s by visiting this page.
Hospital substitute treatment
If you have a hospital stay, you may be able to receive some of your recovery therapy and other medical treatment at home. CBHS’s hospital substitute treatment (HST) program allows members to access services from Registered Nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists or Mental Health Nurses while recovering in the comfort and privacy of home.
The member’s doctor must approve the HST as being clinically appropriate. Dependent on individual assessment members may also be able to access home-based care services, including domestic help or meals. You can find out more about CBHS’s HST by visiting this page.
Eligibility: Any member who has a hospital or package cover and the medical services to be provided are an appropriate substitute for the hospital treatment that would be fully covered under the member’s cover.
