Diabetes Management in the Medical Home: A Diabetes Collaborative Takes Team-Based Approach

Hudson River HealthCare (HRHC) takes a team approach to disease management in the 3,400 adult patients with diabetes it serves, explains Kathy Brieger, RD, CDE, HRHC’s chief operations officer. Ms. Brieger describes the multiple levels of care available to patients served by the HRHC Diabetes Collaborative, a four-point strategy for weight management that targets the most challenging aspect of managing diabetes, and HRHC’s upcoming trial of telepsychiatry at selected FQHCs.

Ms. Brieger presented during Diabetes Management in the Medical Home, a 45-minute webinar on January 26, 2012, providing the inside details on HRHC’s diabetes management program and the program’s impact on its diabetic patients. Brieger shared how to: identify and assess patients for diabetes management, including an analysis of literacy and learning and social barriers that could impact outcomes for complex patients; train staff and report quality data to drive further performance improvement; and much more.
