Health Navigator is a free phone service, designed to help people with chronic conditions get their health back on track.
The Health Navigator program uses phone and telehealth technology to support you with a personalised plan on how to effectively self-manage chronic health conditions.
You can access Health Navigator if you have one or more of the following conditions:
- heart disease
- heart failure
- chronic lung conditions such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) or emphysema.
How it works
Our Health Navigators co-ordinate your care from other health providers, including your general practitioner (GP). Everyone works together to help you 'navigate' the health system and develop an active management plan.
The program has helped more than 1,000 people in the Wheatbelt and Great Southern regions. It is a partnership between the WA Country Health Service and Silver Chain.
As part of the program, we help you design a My Plan. This a personalised plan that you develop with your Health Navigator co-ordinator. The plan helps identify your goals and work out the steps you need to take to self-manage your conditions.
Having a plan also ensures that you, your doctor and other health providers are all working together to improve your health.
