Diabetes - Next Steps
1. Conduct appropriate screenings and create diagnostic plans for comorbidities and complications in patients who have diabetes, including provisions of clinical practice guidelines and performance measures (when appropriate).
2. Create a long-term chronic care disease management plan that includes medical therapy, lifestyle modification, self-management education and psychosocial assessment and care, inclusive of new pharmacologic guidelines for the management of diabetes and updated recommendations for initiation of insulin therapy.
3. Incorporate key elements of the Chronic Care Model (CCM) and the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) into long-term management care of patients with diabetes.
