PHILADELPHIA, February 14, 2013 -- The American College of
Physicians (ACP) in collaboration with CECity, developer of
MedConcert®, a social cloud-based performance improvement
platform, will pilot and test the impact of a technology-based
quality improvement program on physician participation, value to
practices, rapid-cycle learning, and patient outcomes.
The one-year pilot program, "Improving the Quality of Diabetes
Care," will tailor MedConcert with diabetes and cardiovascular
disease prevention content. More than 11 percent of adults in the
United States - an estimated 26 million people - have diabetes,
which is associated with multiple complications and co-morbid
conditions, including cardiovascular disease.
"This initiative will provide important data to help us
determine the feasibility of recruiting physician offices to
participate in an integrated, technology-based quality improvement
program and assess facilitators and barriers," said Michael S.
Barr, MD, MBA, FACP, who leads ACP's Medical Practice,
Professionalism & Quality division. "The data also will enable
us to assess the ease of adopting this type of technology into the
workflows of physician practices and whether it correlates with
improved care processes, patient satisfaction, and patient
Up to 50 internal medicine practices in three states in the
pilot will have access to the following web-based tools:
Physicians may access MedConcert's secure social networks to
engage in peer-to-peer clinical communities that enable patient
coordination of care and real-time communications for sharing best
practices. MedConcert also houses a library of diabetes and CVD
resources and educational materials, including patient education
tools, linked to specific gaps in performance identified in the
registry data, which are also available to participants.
A report on the results of the pilot quality improvement program
is expected by the end of the year. The Center for Health Services
and Outcomes Research at Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg
School of Public Health will conduct the program evaluation.
