National Diabetes Month 2022: Successfully Managing Diabetes Through Virtual Care Solutions that Support Health Care Teams
November is National Diabetes Month, a time when communities across the country bring attention to this disease that affects, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), more than 37 million Americans, including adults and youth. This year’s theme and focus is on managing diabetes through the support of building health care teams.
People with diabetes benefit from virtual care options that can be scaled to provide access to a wide range of providers, healthcare services and diagnostics that enable remote monitoring, which is especially important for chronic condition management.
Members are virtually connected with clinical care teams consisting of a dedicated primary care physicians, nutritionists and board-certified diabetes educators who work collaboratively to deliver holistic care focused on personalized health and wellness. Also including are educational resources and a portal for managing prescription, lab orders and a range of at-home testing of blood sugar and other diagnostic capabilities.
As a component of Recuro’s Digital Medical Home™, diabetic care is also provided though Recuro’s Virtual Primary Care (VPC). A “virtual visit” is established through a computer or smartphone. Patients interact virtually with their care teams through multiple communication channels, including real-time video, mobile and secure messaging. This provides numerous conveniences and benefits to delivering cost-efficient, quality care.
