- Diabetes measures that are nationally recognized by the National Quality Forum and CMS; measures will comport with requirements of pay-for-reporting and performance programs including and Bridges to Excellence (BTE) as well as PCMH certification requirements. Measures include:
- Hemoglobin A1c Poor Control
- Foot Exam
- Eye Exam
- Medical Attention for Nephropathy
- Influenza Immunization
- Body Mass Index (BMI) Screening and Follow-Up
- Tobacco Use: Screening and Cessation Intervention
- Coaching calls and technical assistance/practice facilitation to import, upload, or enter data, receive reports on performance, and implement QI projects and practice changes
- Tools and resources to improve care, including free access to the ACP Practice Advisor
- Added value through direct links to professional and reimbursement requirements, including Maintenance of Certification (MOC) for Practice Assessment points, and Bridges to Excellence (BTE) Diabetes Recognition Program;
- Peer-to-peer collaboration and learning, with ongoing opportunities for live, virtual, and social networking communication and exchanges.
