Managing complex medical cases


Patients and their families who face serious and complex illnesses often need to make critical decisions, such as: determining the right tests to undergo, selecting the best treating physician and choosing the most effective treatment.

It is precisely when patients are experiencing stress and anxiety, and at times, life-threatening situations, that they need to deal with the unfamiliar and overwhelming world of medicine, foreign medical terminology and complex medical information. They must make informed decisions, but don’t always have a clear mind to do so.

Patients depend on Consilium

These are the situations in which people turn to Consilium, independent experts who take responsibility, in collaboration with the patient and family, for evaluation and treatment.

Consilium’s physician case manager is the patient’s direct contact to address all matters related to their medical care. Consilium directs the patient in developing and prioritizing the evaluation plan by intelligently integrating all relevant information.

Relying on a broad perspective and in-depth knowledge of the health care system, the Consilium physician helps formulate the diagnostic and treatment strategy most appropriate for the patient’s condition.
