Addressing One of the Nation’s Top Health Threats
Diabetes is a major health epidemic, killing more Americans each year than AIDS and breast cancer combined. Nearly 30 million children and adults - 10 percent of Americans - have diabetes.
Diabetes is a chronic condition with a number of comorbidities and complications, and there is an alarming correlation between diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). CVD is the leading cause of death among people with type 2 diabetes. Adults with diabetes are also up to four times more likely to have CVD then those without diabetes.
A Coordinated Effort to Drive Results
The partners involved in the Diabetes Collaborative Registry recognize the importance of consolidating efforts and taking an integrated, coordinated and interdisciplinary approach to this real-world problem. The Diabetes Collaborative Registry marks the first-time that clinical "big data" are being used across multiple health care specialty areas to create the evidence needed to provide high-quality prevention, care and treatment options to patients with diabetes.
Improved Patient Outcomes
The Diabetes Collaborative Registry draws measures predominantly from existing Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) measures and retrieves data from electronic health records to facilitate coordinated care, prevention and treatment of diabetes.
The Diabetes Collaborative Registry provides easy-to-interpret benchmark reports that validate the quality care you provide and pinpoint opportunities for improvement.
