Diabetes Care

Nearly one-third of people aged 65 years and older have diabetes.

Overview

The Telligen QIN-QIO collaborates with healthcare providers to improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities for people with diabetes.

Our work:

  • Supports people with diabetes and prediabetes through diabetes self-management education classes to make “small changes for big rewards.”
  • Forms committed partnerships to provide diabetes education classes with community organizations – such as community centers, senior housing developments, and faith-based groups – that serve people with prediabetes or diabetes.
  • Provides in-depth training for diabetes peer educator certification to individuals enthusiastic about community health.
  • Collaborates with physician practices to improve long-term outcomes for patients with prediabetes and diabetes and extends technical assistance for Medicare reimbursement.
