Chronic Disease Online Treatment, Care & Management
Hassle-free online management and care for chronic diseases.
Chronic diseases are those diseases that potentially affect a person for prolonged periods – from a few months to several years. Some examples are asthma, heart diseases, cancer, and diabetes. Fortunately, these diseases are preventable and manageable through early detection, a well-curated diet, intricate exercises, and treatment therapy.
With WalkinVirtualClinics, you can create your account for free (no hidden charges) and consult with trusted providers in just minutes.
Before your visit even starts, make sure to tell your telehealth provider that you are interested in ongoing chronic care management. You should inform your WalkinVirtualClinics physician if you have any conditions other than the one for which you are seeking ongoing care, as well as any existing prescriptions or over-the-counter medications that you are taking.
Some medications do not react well with others, so it’s important to be honest and open with your doctor to avoid complications.

Chronic care management – which is defined as ongoing care for conditions that are expected to last anywhere from a year to the rest of your life – is widely recognized as a critical component of your primary care and one that has a profound impact on improving your overall well-being. If you previously were diagnosed with a condition that requires chronic care management, you have the option to see a WalkinVirtualClinics online provider for this ongoing care.
So, how effective is telemedicine in helping you manage your chronic conditions? Many studies have shown that being able to access care online greatly increases your ability to manage your condition. The ease of access to specialists – particularly in remote areas – means patients have greater opportunities to discuss their conditions regularly and frequently. Also, the ability to speak with a physician or specialist more frequently helps you to stick to your care plan and get a better understanding of your condition.
Currently, we provide patients with help managing the following:
Generally, incurable and ongoing chronic diseases affect approximately 133 million Americans, representing more than 40% of the total population of the country. By the end of 2020, that number is projected to grow to an estimated 157 million, with 81 million having multiple conditions!
About half of all adults have a chronic condition, and approximately 8 percent of children between 5 to 17 were reported by their parents to have limited activities due to at least one chronic disease or disability. More and more people are living with not just one chronic illness, such as diabetes, heart disease, or depression, but with two or more conditions. Almost a third of the population is now living with multiple chronic conditions.
More than 75% of all healthcare costs are due to chronic conditions. Four of the five most expensive health conditions (based on total health care spending in a given year in the United States) are chronic conditions – heart disease, cancer, mental disorders, and pulmonary conditions. A 2007 study reported that seven chronic diseases – cancer, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, heart disease, pulmonary conditions, and mental illness – have a total impact on the economy of $1.3 trillion annually. By the year 2023, this number is projected to increase to $4.2 trillion in treatment costs and lost economic output.

No. Because the diagnosis of chronic conditions requires specialized tests with specific equipment, they cannot diagnose your chronic condition. In order to see a WalkinVirtualClinics physician for chronic care management, you will first need a diagnosis of that condition from a physician you have seen in person.
