Jun 17, 2013
The National Diabetes Education Program’s (NDEP) refreshed “Practice Transformation for Physicians and Health Care Teams” (formerly known as “Better Diabetes Care”) is designed for health care professionals and administrators who want to change systems of health care delivery around diabetes.
Practice change is essential to provide evidence-based care recommended by the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model and to manage issues related to diabetes and its complications. This free online resource provides models, links, and tools to help physicians and health care teams initiate and maintain quality improvements in their health care practice. Content featured on this site is based on current, peer-reviewed literature and evidence-based clinical practice recommendations.
“Practice Transformation for Physicians and Health Care Teams” is organized by the following key sections:
- Engage Leadership & Assess Your Practice
- Provide Evidence-Based Care
- Use Information Systems
- Improve Practice Quality
- Use Clinical Decision Support
- Practice Team-Based Care
