Payer Perspective: Diabetes Management

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

Diabetes is a common condition in today’s healthcare system. This high-volume condition can be managed effectively, but diabetes disease management can also become complicated. If not controlled, diabetes will lead to serious complications such as neuropathy, retinopathy, renal disease, and cardiac disease. These comorbidities lead to decreased quality of life and increased cost to both the patient and the healthcare system. The comorbidities of diabetes will increase drug therapies and require additional prescriber care. It is important to educate patients on the methods available to reduce costs and increase quality of life. By creating a self-care plan with their patients, healthcare providers will not only improve patient outcomes, but will also empower patients to take a bigger role in their own disease management. When patients become empowered, resources (both time and economic) can be thoughtfully allocated to other patients or areas of need. However, creating a self-care plan requires input from both the healthcare provider and the patient, and no two plans are likely to be the same. Factors such as finances, living situation, diet, or other social determinants of health must be considered when designing a plan. In this course, the actions needed for a well-rounded self-care plan will be explored.
