Recognition for demonstrating high levels of Diabetes care
Millions of Americans have some form of diabetes, and millions more cases are undiagnosed. To encourage more effective treatment and management, BTE worked with diabetes experts to develop measures to assess and reward superior clinician performance. These measures address a broad range of issues affecting patient health and wellness.
To earn Recognition, clinicians must meet benchmarks on measures such as:
- Blood pressure
- LDL levels
- HgBA1c levels
- Ophthalmologic and podiatry exams
- Nephropathy assessment
Those who do will improve overall patient health and well being, while reducing the risk of potentially avoidable complications.
