Continuous Practice Improvement: Diabetes Control

About

Continuous Improvement: Diabetes ControlThe HRSA Health Center Program made diabetes management a priority initiative and urges all centers to have a diabetes action plan by the end of the year. This spring, Purdue Healthcare Advisors and the Indiana Quality Improvement Network will help a dozen Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) implement that plan while building their own internal quality improvement capabilities.

An initial training cohort comprised of 6 FQHCs (12 participants each) will learn how to implement workflows to improve their respective center’s diabetes control measures. The goal will be to move each center’s diabetes-related clinical quality measures including A1c.

From April to August of 2020, PHA will provide live, remote training; expert coaching; and access to an online platform through which each cohort can share best practices and lessons learned.

  • Mid-April Pre-work begins
  • May Four Fridays of Webinar training*
  • June Projects launched
  • August Work wrap up

Cohort members will learn evidence-based guidelines for diabetes management as well as how to implement new standard work and track outcomes. Workflows covered may include:

  • how to leverage electronic health tools to create a registry of diabetic patients in poor control
  • how to engage patients through SDoH screenings, community resource referrals, and targeted interventions
  • how to guide clinical staff to develop individual patient action plans and med management alerts

 *Cohorts are limited to two staff members per center. Participants must commit to attend all training sessions to be eligible for certification as a Lean Daily Improvement Facilitator. The sessions are planned for the mornings of May 1, 8, 15 and 22 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. (ET)
