Imagine you are working in an outpatient specialty office. Your nursing director has informed you that due to “accountable care” your office might be penalized by having too many diabetic patients that are above the hemoglobin A1C (HBA1C) goal of 8. The national benchmark is that only 20% of your population should be above 8 and your office shows 40%. Your physicians have also been informed by their management of the same issue.
Develop a plan using enhanced communications with patients to reach the benchmark goal. What might you do if you had the resources to accomplish this? You should consider all the technology you might be able to use such as a patient portal, wireless home monitor, texting, and secure messaging for example.
