Improving the Quality and Effectiveness of the
Diabetes Chronic Care Teams

This is a must for any hospital, clinic or organization that mentors or employs chronic care teams. The prestigious Institute of Medicine 's recently issued Quality Chasm Report outlined:

  • Four major gaps in the quality of care and effectiveness of today's teams in producing patient outcomes
  • Four main characteristics which 'new design' teams must have to close these gaps
  • Seven key areas that chronic care teams must evaluate for redesign to significantly improve outcomes

Per the IOM, ALL teams should be evaluated for:

  1. Existence of 4 gaps in old team design
  2. Ways to adopt 4 main 'gap-closing' characteristics
  3. Team redesign in 7 required quality areas

Mary Ann's detailed presentation also provides attendees with the Quick Guide for Improving Chronic Care Teams to simplify this 3-point task. This invaluable guide, yours at not charge at the seminar, includes:

  • Easy "Quality Gaps Evaluation Test"
  • Succinct "Close the Gaps Map"
  • To-the-point "Redesign Checklist"
