Diabetes Recognition Program Summit
The Summit was held at NCQA headquarters in Washington, DC. NCQA leadership, clinical program support staff and a wide array of industry stakeholders volunteered their time to share ideas and suggestions on how the quality of care patients with diabetes receive can be improved and how the DRP program can help accomplish this goal.
The Summit was organized by Sanofi, a supporter of the DRP since 2009, through its Partners in Patient Health division. By focusing on critical health issues such as diabetes, Partners in Patient Health strives to help improve the health of patients by connecting people, ideas, and solutions—networking with advocates representing national patient, provider, payer, quality, science, and innovation groups.
As a result of the summit, the steering committee, with insights across 13 different diabetes care stakeholders including NCQA, have written a White Paper on the topic of Leaders Advancing the Quality of Care for Patients with Diabetes. Our hope is that you will find the White Paper informative and will share it with others, you feel could benefit from this collective knowledge.
