Modernizing Diabetes Care

Modernizing Diabetes Care


Today, care for persons with type 2 diabetes has reached a critical juncture as modern care tools and approaches have the ability to improve health outcomes and change millions of lives. But, to achieve these results, health policy and practice need to keep pace with care needs and innovations. 

With the tools that are available, how can we modernize health policy and practice to drive improved health outcomes for people with type 2 diabetes? How can health policy expand access to innovations and increase equity? Are we adequately adhering to, leveraging, and evolving treatment guidelines and quality metrics? And given the tools that exist, what quality of care should patients be empowered to expect from their medical providers?

Around World Diabetes Day, The Hill will host policymakers and medical professionals for a comprehensive discussion on modernizing health policy and practice to improve care for persons with type 2 diabetes in all communities.
