Health Management Council
The Medical Directors Health Management Council of NAMCP promotes preventive management and assessments of health risk, develops tools for patients and physicians that will be used to monitor and manage chronic disease, and proactively promotes patients becoming active participants in their care using their physicians as consultants. The Health Management Council has two Centers:
Center for Prevention, Wellness and Lifestyle
- Provide a resource center for standardization of preventive health guidelines
- Provide resources and tools for medical directors and physicians
- Promotes changes in lifestyle to prevent chronic diseases
Center for Continuity of Care (Chronic Illness)
- Provide tools for physicians and patients to efficiently monitor and manage chronic disease and improve health outcomes
- Provide disease-specific resource centers for medical directors
The purpose of the Medical Directors Oncology Council is to provide increased and ongoing information and resources to medical directors from purchasers, health plans and provider systems about cancer. The Institute is led by an Executive Leadership Council of medical directors from purchasers, health plans and provider systems.
The NAMCP Medical Directors Oncology Council is becoming very active in the world of oncology. We have had conversations with COA, NCCN and ASCO on working with medical directors to improve communications and issues between oncologists, hospitals and medical directors.
