CTC-RI selects practices and launches Diabetes / Chronic Kidney Disease Learning Collaborative

  • 14 Jun 2024

CTC-RI is excited to kick off the project, Implementing Primary Care and Pharmacy Strategies to Improve Care for Patients with Diabetes. The project is a partnership with University of Rhode Island (URI) College of Pharmacy and Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH), with funding provided by UnitedHealthcare and RIDOH. The goals of this project are to help primary care practices to improve the screening and treatment of diabetes, and to detect diabetes-related eye and kidney disease earlier in patients.

 This two-year learning collaborative includes the collaboratives and quality improvement projects to improve screening rates and management for patients with diabetes, retinopathy and nephropathy. Our participating practices met this June to kick off the project, with Kelley Sanzen, PharmD, and Stephen Kogut, PhD, MBA. Congratulations to the participating practices:
