Better Type 2 Diabetes Patient Outcomes Happen
with Better Communication
CMS and commercial payers are quickly moving primary care practices to value-based reimbursement with programs like MACRA and CPC+ that reward better outcomes and delivery of truly comprehensive care. Although these programs offer some very significant revenue opportunities, practices are challenged by the increasing number of patients diagnosed with diabetes and co-morbid chronic conditions who typically demand a disproportionate amount of a care team’s time and resources.
For both patients and providers to succeed, a new paradigm is needed wherein enhanced communications leads to a more engaged and self-managed patient. In this free webinar, Dr. William Polonsky will speak about his recent research on how effective patient-physician conversations can lead to better outcomes in Type 2 Diabetes.
Dr. William Polonsky, a leading clinician and clinical advisor to Saturn Care, has been a pioneer of behavioral aspects of diabetes care. He has been recognized for his achievements by the ADA with his receipt in 2014 of the Richard R. Rubin Award. An associate clinical professor at the University of California, San Diego, he also founded and serves as President of the Behavioral Diabetes Institute, and is considered one of the leading experts on this important and timely topic.
