Outstanding Quality of Care
There are many clinics that treat patients with diabetes. But Joslin is one of the only institutions in the nation that’s 100% focused on it — and we’ve been nationally recognized for doing so. Our team is made up of world-renowned diabetes researchers and clinicians who work together to advance treatments and research towards a cure.
We’ve also put quality recognition programs in place to protect our patients, so they can feel confident they’re receiving the best possible care. Here are a few of the programs that have recognized Joslin.
The Patient-Centered Specialty Practice program recognizes institutions, like Joslin, that coordinate care with primary care clinicians and specialists. To be recognized by the NCQA, clinicians must organize care around their patients, and include all of the healthcare professionals a patient sees, as well as families and caregivers. This approach results in a higher quality of care and fewer medical redundancies.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance offers a Diabetes Recognition Program, and Joslin is a proud participant. This elite program recognizes clinicians who use evidence-based measures to provide high quality care to patients with diabetes. These clinicians are publicly acknowledged for the care they provide. To participate, Joslin clinicians had to submit data showing they met certain quality guidelines in at least six clinical performance measures.
Education and self-management is key to thriving with diabetes. That’s why the American Diabetes Association (ADA) recognizes institutions with outstanding educational programs. Joslin Diabetes Center is proud to be recognized by the American Diabetes Association’s Education Recognition Program. Our nurse educators are some of the best in their field — and our patients agree.
