PrimaryPlus knows and understands that the word DIABETES can be scary and very unsettling. No matter how many years you may have had the disease—those thoughts and concerns never really go away. Through our WeCare® program, we can help ease your fears of diabetes by helping you to better understand the disease and give you tools to manage it. Our program is centered around helping you control your diabetes. WeCare® is composed of an amazing group of cheerleaders and coaches (aka Nurses, Medical Providers, Pharmacists, Dietitians, Certified Diabetes Educators and more) to help guide you through this journey to a HEALHTIER YOU!
Chronic disease such as diabetes warrants that— care often needs to extend beyond the exam room walls! That is where our WeCare® team leaps in to action assisting your regular medical provider with your care— a TEAM approach. Talk to your PrimaryPlus medical provider today if you wish to learn more about this program.
The Case Managers for PrimaryPlus’ WeCare® program serve as the tour guide on the diabetes journey helping patients understand their health, the opportunities, the resources and the benefits. Their nursing background provides them with all the right tools to help you achieve optimal health. It is our goal to work with the patient on many levels to close care gaps and be a direct line of communication.
