Lea Hemmelgarn recently provided much needed support and care management for a patient who was a member of Conifer’s Personal Health Management program. This member was admitted with two strains of COVID-19, but her hospitalization was further complicated by several new, complex diagnoses.  In addition to helping the member understand these new diagnoses, Lea also worked to help ensure she had the right care. She facilitated home health nursing care for immediate needs and also connected the member with a specialist. She assisted with filling new prescriptions and ensuring the member knew how and when to take them. In addition to providing education on diet and lifestyle changes, she offered support to the member as she recovered and developed a “new normal.”
