Case Studies from Diabetes Medical Home Pilots:
Key Processes, Tools, Metrics and Outcomes


Does the patient-centered medical home model deliver on its promise of improved quality
and reduced costs for chronic care management? Will already overburdened physicians
be able to meet the PCMH's time and technical demands under current reimbursement
formulas? These and other questions are addressed in our new report documenting two
recently completed medical home pilots for patients with diabetes.

"Case Studies from Diabetes Medical Home Pilots:
Key Processes, Tools, Models, Measurements and
Outcomes

This 40-page special report describes how diabetes patients benefited when
Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey – one of the first insurers
in the nation to reimburse physicians for the medical home model of care –
shared health-related data with Partners In Care, a coordination entity that
created comprehensive member profiles for physicians treating these patients.
Dr. James Barr, medical director for Partners in Care, recounts the one-year
diabetes medical home model that resulted in dramatic spikes in clinical outcomes
and compliance for key diabetes markers among these patients.

In the second case study, doctors with Community Care of North Carolina initiated
medical homes for Medicaid patients with diabetes. The ongoing care, information
and support that physicians and caseworkers gave these patients made a huge difference
in patient compliance, clinical outcomes and healthcare utilization. Roberta Burgess,
a nurse case manager with Community Care Plan of North Carolina, shares best practice
care coordination strategies for diabetic patients with special emphasis on the challenges
of delivering disease management to Medicaid beneficiaries.

In "Case Studies from Diabetes Medical Home Pilots: Key Processes, Tools, Metrics
and Outcomes

home initiative, as well as a host of checklists and tools for a diabetes medical home.
They also furnish details on the following:
