Logan Hospital was experiencing long wait times for chronic disease specialist appointments and was also relying too much on the ED for suboptimal care. To remedy the above issues a chronic disease nurse practitioner clinic was established.

The clinic offers comprehensive patient assessments, exercise/lifestyle programs, coordinated approach to healthcare and telephone follow-up.

Since implementing the clinic in June of 2014 96% patients attended their scheduled appointments, 78% had no Emergency Department visits related to their chronic disease and only 5% required hospital admission.
