After adjusting for population, age and sex differences, average medical expenditures among people with diagnosed diabetes were 2.3 times higher than what expenditures would be in the absence of diabetes, according to 2011 data from the American Association of Diabetes.

Hudson River HealthCare (HRHC), a network of 16 federally qualified community health centers located across six counties in New York's Hudson Valley, uses a patient-centered team of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, RNs, LPNs, medical assistants (MAs), certified diabetes educators, nutritionists and community health workers (Patient Care Partners) to manage its diabetic population.

HRHC's Diabetes Collaborative program, in place for over 12 years, combines attributes from both the Institute for Health Improvement and the Wagner Chronic Care Model, to manage diabetic care for more than 3,400 adult patients. Diabetes Management in the Medical Home

During Diabetes Management in the Medical Home, a 45-minute webinar on January 26th at 1:30 pm Eastern, Kathy Brieger, RD, CDE, chief operations officer at HRHC, will share the inside details on the diabetes management program and the program's impact on its diabetic patients. Brieger will share 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;
  • Use "Conversation Maps," other self-management support programs and community resources in diabetes education; and
  • Assign measures for program evaluation and reimbursement, along with the results Hudson River has achieved.
