15 Mar American Medical Group Association campaign hopes to improve diabetes care, leverage data sharing
More than 100 member organizations have committed to participating in the effort to empower patients and improve care delivery.
The AMGA Foundation – the nonprofit arm of the American Medical Group Association – has launched a national campaign aimed at improving care for diabetes patients.
Hundreds of AMGA medical groups and health systems from across the country attended the launch of the “Diabetes: Together 2 Goal” campaign in Orlando, Florida during the AMGA 2016 Annual Conference last week.
To date, more than 100 AMGA members have committed to implementing at least one of the campaign planks – 11 evidence-based care processes – aimed at improving the care of people with the condition by empowering patients, improving care delivery and leveraging information technology.
Campaign participants will report data on a quarterly basis to measure progress toward that goal.
Diabetes: Together 2 Goal will “build upon the hard work that our members are doing to address the nation’s most pressing chronic conditions,” said Donald W. Fisher, president and CEO of AMGA and secretary of the board of the AMGA Foundation.
