Date: Wednesday, November 4

Time: 1:00 p.m. ET

Presenters: Chad Malone, M.D.

A Systematic Approach to Successful Diabetes Care

Diabetes remains a major focus for healthcare providers and chronic disease management programs. Over 29 million people in the U.S have diabetes1, with 33 to 49% of patients not meeting targets goals for A1C, blood pressure, and cholesterol2. However, a major barrier to optimal care is a delivery system that is often fragmented, lacks clinical information capabilities, and is poorly designed for the coordinated delivery of chronic care. 

Successful diabetes care requires a systematic approach to supporting patients’ behavior change efforts, including the utilization of multi-disciplinary care teams, personalized provider feedback, continuous real-time monitoring, and decision-support tools to target and care for patients at risk for poor outcomes. 

Ultimately, healthcare institutions are looking for ways to tailor population care to meet individual patient needs, through integrated technologies that help to optimally manage and prevent diabetes in the future. In this P.A.C.E.-accredited Fisher Healthcare webinar, join Abbott and Dr. Chad Malone to learn how to drive clinical practice to standards that provide the best outcome for pre-diabetic and diabetic populations.

Learning Objectives

  • Form a complete picture of your diabetic population and identify gaps in population management and individual outcomes
  • Create a healthcare delivery system that provides evidence-based patient-centered care
  • Empower your patients to enable personalized lifestyle and treatment changes
  • Enable a continuous model of chronic disease management and efficiently achieve quality measures
