Memorial Hermann's Population Health Service Organization's Health Management department is designed to support patients, families, physicians and health care professionals by improving the overall health of our assigned ACO lives. Our team performs a comprehensive assessment and provides individualized care plans to meet the specific needs of the individual by collaborating with physicians, clinical staff, patients, family members and caregivers.

The Health Management Department works to achieve this goal by supporting and educating ACO-assigned patients on their acute and chronic health care conditions. We assist patients by promoting health wellness and health prevention to help decrease the chances of visiting the hospital or emergency room unnecessarily. Our team will assess all medical and psychosocial needs and work to help overcome any barrier that would prevent a patient from reaching their optimal health. With this knowledge, patients feel empowered to manage their own care and communicate with their providers about their individual needs.

Our multidisciplinary team includes experienced Registered Nurses, Licensed Vocational Nurses, Social Workers, Pharmacists, Community Health Workers, Health Coaches and Non-Clinical Support Staff who are dedicated to meeting the needs of our patients and their families through ongoing support and care coordination.
