Patient-Centered Diabetes Care: Putting Theory into Practice

On April 10-11, 2014, The American Journal of Managed Care hosted, "Patient-Centered Diabetes Care: Putting Theory into Practice," in Princeton, NJ. The event focused on how new reimbursement models and the use of technology is transforming care for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes patients.
Deneen Vojta, MD, UnitedHealth Group, says that the healthcare landscape is shifting to delivery models that focus on greater value-based care, such as accountable care models.
Teresa Pearson, MS, RN, CDE, Innovative Health Care Designs, LLC, uses her experience as a diabetes educator to discuss how community care teams can build an effective virtual healthcare delivery system.
Jan Berger, MD, MJ, moderates a discussion on the evolution of the diabetes care team. She is joined by Starlin Haydon-Greatting, MS, BSPharm, FAPhA , Geoffrey Joyce, PhD, Edmund Pezalla, MD, MPH, and Rebecca Killion, MA.
This panel, led by moderator Dennis Scanlon, PhD, Penn State University, asks the question, "Why should a payer or a plan be involved in patient care?" Dr Scanlon is joined by panelists Teresa Pearson, MS, RN, CDE, FAADE; Deneen Vojta, MD; Todd Prewitt, MD, FAAFP; and Amy Tenderich.
Robert Gabbay, MD, PhD, discusses the changes he wishes to see in the healthcare system that he calls a "journey toward quality," and with his work at the Joslin Diabetes Center, he dreams of ridding the world of diabetes by implementing innovation.
Starlin Haydon-Greatting, MS, BSPharm, claims that pharmacist education has changed; by furthering education and credentials, a pharmacist's role in the healthcare world can extend far beyond what were once thought to be the traditional roles of the pharmacist. Pharmacists' involvement in programs such as the Medication Therapy Management, for example, can have a positive impact on health management in general.
