The Connections program provides access for patients to nurse case managers who provide support and patient education. These nurse case managers are also a resource to you for help in verifying patient insurance benefits and reimbursement.
The Connections program provides periodic newsletters and educational brochures.
Additionally, the Connections program provides access to teleconferences — Phone Facts — in which your patients may speak with others regarding their experiences with VNS Therapy. Your patients may participate anonymously and from the privacy of their own homes. These teleconferences are moderated by psychiatrists experienced with VNS Therapy and other treatments for depression.
Hear from a VNS Therapy case manager
"Hello. I'm Julie. I'm a Licensed Nurse and a case manager for VNS Therapy.
The way the nurse case manager helps in ongoing education is a vital role with VNS Therapy. One of our primary roles is education…we want to let the patient know that when they call in, we're available to help them through all steps of education."
— Julie H., VNS Therapy case manager
