Columbia Pacific CCO has developed a more robust version of the diabetes dashboard that will soon be ready to share with clinics. This dashboard includes a registry of all patients who have a claim for diabetes and makes therapy recommendations for a patient based on current A1C, medication adherence and gaps in care. Recently, this dashboard was validated internally and showed that clinics that used the dashboard alongside CareOregon’s diabetes treatment pathway were more likely to achieve the diabetes metric than clinics that did not use the dashboard.
The following are elements of the dashboard:
- Patient name and demographics
- Adherence calculations for oral diabetes medications, hypertension medications and statins
- Recent labs, including A1C, BP measurement and body mass index
- Gaps in care, including kidney and eye exams
- List of diabetes and hypertension drugs filled
- Diabetes treatment pathway with expanded medication options
- Statin recommendations
We also have created a document that explains the elements of the dashboard and gives clinics tips on how to use the information to improve care. Panel coordinators, MAs, pharmacists and physicians can all play an important role in using this tool to improve the quality of diabetes care.
If you are interested in having a Diabetes Dashboard presentation at your clinic, please contact Melissa Brewster, PharmD, BCPS (firstname.lastname@example.org ) for scheduling.
