At Lincare, improving our patient’s quality of life is our main focus. And for people who are affected by chronic illness, quality of life can become compromised as they struggle with the various symptoms that define their disease. These patients often must adapt their lifestyles to accommodate their illness. At Lincare, we prefer another solution: empowering our patients to manage their disease process and feel secure that better quality of life is an achievable, maintainable and even, expected outcome.
An essential component to delivering effective solutions to patients with respiratory disease is the expertise and advice of the medical community. Our work to deliver home care protocols and care plans alongside the best medical resources in the industry help ensure the best patient outcomes.
Emphasis is placed on individual patient understanding and compliance to a specified plan of care. The overall goal continues to be achieving patient self-management of the disease.

Collaborative disease management—involving the patient, physician and health care provider—yields positive outcomes including:
