February is American Heart Month. At this time, healthcare professionals are encouraging patients to ask questions concerning cardiovascular disease and relaying important information on cholesterol and blood pressure.
Our Care Coordinators speak with your patients every month, asking questions and raising flags if patients develop symptoms that put them at risk for heart disease and stroke. Wellbox Nurses want to make sure they are asking the right questions and providing patients with the necessary tools and resources to diminish or manage their risk of any heart related diseases.
By understanding their blood pressure numbers, what good cholesterol is, and whether or not medication is needed, patients can be armed with the tools to control their heart health.
