About Skilled Health Management

Skilled health management is a great option for families taking care of a loved one who needs help because of age, disability, or chronic illness. Addressing the medical needs of someone can feel like a full-time job and become overwhelming when you have responsibilities in your own life. Discover Health can manage the healthcare needs of your loved one so you can focus on your relationships. We act as the point-person for requests, problems, concerns, and needs, so everyone in the family knows who to contact. We can also help delegate responsibilities to the support system based on skillset and availability. Similarly, skilled health management is a valuable option for someone who has chronic healthcare needs and would like to remain independent from well-meaning family members. You can get the healthcare help and support you need without relying on personal relationships.

What Can You Expect from Skilled Health Management?

A skilled health manager works with individuals, their families, and care providers to ensure healthcare needs are met and managed. It requires an in-depth understanding of the patient’s health challenges, current plan, available support, and goals for the management services. 

Discover Health designs and implements the personalized care plans. We act as the liaison between the patient and the available care services. This includes managing families, trusted advisors, guardians, healthcare providers, and attorneys. Depending on needs, we:

  • Manage care and living plans
  • Provide guidance for caring for individuals with long-term requirements
  • Analyze service options and help you make a decision
  • Act as the manager and contact-person for family members offering help
  • Create care schedules by leveraging everyone’s skillset
  • Ensure quality-of-life
Discover Health Manages Healthcare.

The healthcare industry is overwhelming. Discover Health is here to support you and your loved ones as you navigate the complicated world of doctors, insurance, pharmacists, care facilities, and other providers in your healthcare journey. Contact us today to get help.

Request Care services

Always patient, calm and ready to listen; Susan helped us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. She was accessible and flexible to our needs while navigating care for my disabled brother. I would highly recommend her services.

Susan’s skill, knowledge of medical terms and research of recent medical developments related to my condition was the key to a successful outcome for a very challenging medical situation with a long list of potential complications. Susan provided excellent materials to educate me as to my various choices for treatment and interfaced very well with all Doctors and Nurses as she accompanied me to many appointments, consultations, and two surgeries. Highly recommended!

Many times, navigating the insurance while dealing with an illness, can be very challenging. Susan was able to help me better understand what my insurance covers, how to communicate with my insurance company and how to continue to follow up to make sure I’m not paying bills that should be covered by insurance. In addition, I plan on contacting Susan for further help in communicating with my doctors, as a liaison because sometimes, as a patient, I feel my doctors don’t “hear” me. Susan is amazing and I highly recommend her services!
