Overview

Through the data validation process, valuable information is gained that can then be used to improve performance around patient care or quality of care metrics.  Improving quality performance may take the form of improving data collection processes, better identifying patients who need additional interventions, or decreasing missed opportunities to provide patients appropriate interventions, among other possibilities. This section includes guidance on leveraging Health IT to improve quality performance including change packages for recommended approaches related to various quality of care measures.

Opportunities to Improve Diabetes Outcomes through Electronic Patient Engagement

Opportunities to Improve Diabetes Outcomes through Electronic Patient Engagement

HITEQ Highlights

Upwards of 23 million people are living with some form of diabetes within the U.S. Accordingly, BPHC has outlined goals toward addressing this issue within the community health setting by seeking to decrease the percentage of adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes whose most recent HbA1c was greater than 9%. Key barriers to effective diabetes management may include a lack of patient activation and engagement with their diabetic care plan and difficulty in maintaining regimens that include glucose monitoring, diet and exercise, and adherence to medications.

Electronic patient engagement technologies are having a significant impact on diabetes-related health outcomes and can help to increase patient to provider diabetes care plan involvement and communication. This HITEQ webinar explored use cases and strategies for effective adoption and evaluation of electronic patient engagement diabetes interventions within the health center setting.
