Phil's True Story of Coordinated Care
Care Coordination Helps Win the Battle Against A Variety of Medical Conditions
Phil Little was so frustrated with his health problems, he came close to giving up. He was overweight and could hardly breathe. He also suffered from COPD, congestive heart failure and diabetes. Phil lacked the motivation to follow through with the prescribed plan to improve his health. With the help of a health psychologist at Meriter - UnityPoint Health, Phil has become the center of his own care team, which also includes a dietitian and exercise professionals. He's now well on his way to losing 100 pounds, and he no longer needs insulin.
