Sharon Abernathy | Personal Health Nurse

Conifer Value Based Care, Medical Management

Personal Health Nurse Sharon Abernathy recently provided critical support to a Personal Health Management Program member patient on his COVID-19 recovery and associated lung damage.  The patient did not have a primary care physician, and Sharon facilitated engagement with an in-network provider who could see the member quickly after discharge. Sharon also provided him with equipment to monitor his oxygen levels while he recovered, educated him on risks of re-infection, and supported him through the isolation challenges so many patients have to manage with a COVID-19 diagnosis.
