National Day of Action
December 2017 Edition

Are you looking for tips about building or improving a dedicated diabetes care team at your organization? Check out our two newest Goal-Getters:

  • HealthPartners Medical Group: Read how a patient taking 45 medications inspired HealthPartners to reorganize their care teams to better support patients with chronic conditions.
  • Pinnacle Health System: Learn how Pinnacle’s team-wide focus on patients with A1c levels higher than 9.0 paid off.

These Goal-Getters present strategies and tactics that can be used to overcome barriers to team building. They also include contact information for the "head coach" at each organization if you have additional questions. If you haven’t seen all of our Goal-Getters, you can download all archived editions from our website.

Is your organization having great success on a certain campaign measure? Are you doing something unique to drive measureable results for your patients with Type 2 diabetes? If so, you are a Goal-Getter! Let us know and help us share best practices with your colleagues nationwide by completing the online form.
