Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus; Type II Diabetes Chronic Care Management


Improving self-care among patients diagnosed with type II diabetes mellitus (DMII) shows improved outcomes for patients. Diabetic self-management education is an effective way to help patients control their blood sugar, the education must be costeffective while satisfying the patient’s needs and desires (Chrvala et al., 2015). In a primary care clinic, chronic care management (CCM) was provided through weekly telephone conversation with a nurse to total 20 minutes of monthly conversation. Over a one-month time frame, a pre and post intervention survey were obtained from patients enrolled in the CCM program. This program allows providers and nurses to have frequent contact with the patient reinforcing education and improving self-care management of DMII patients at the same time receiving reimbursement for documented time spent.
