NCQA Diabetes Recognition
Primary care physicians with SSM Health Medical Group have been recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Diabetes Recognition Program (DRP) for meeting the national standards of diabetes care. These physicians are:
The NCQA Diabetes Recognition Program is a voluntary program designed to recognize clinicians who use evidence-based measures and provide excellent care to their patients with diabetes.
Those who achieve DRP Recognition show their peers, patients and others in the diabetes community, that they are part of an elite group that is publicly recognized for their skill in providing the highest-level of diabetes care.
In order to attain this recognition from the NCQA, each physician had to submit records of their patients that demonstrated evidence of HbA1c control, blood pressure control, LDL control, eye examinations, nephropathy assessment, and smoking and tobacco cessation advice or treatment.
“For a person with diabetes, the right clinician can make the difference between living with diabetes as opposed to suffering from diabetes,” said Margaret E. O’Kane, President, National Committee for Quality Assurance. “By earning recognition, these SSM Medical Group physicians have demonstrated that they provide effective, evidence-based care to their patients with diabetes.”
