Optimizing an EHR to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

4:00pm - 5:00pm Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W330A

Description

The U.S. is experiencing a type 2 diabetes epidemic which could be reduced by providing effective prevention interventions to patients with prediabetes like the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). EHRs, coupled with active provider engagement, can serve as a useful tool not only to identify prediabetes patients, but also to facilitate referrals to DPPs. Overall, this can aid in increasing enrollment rates and perhaps mitigate the burden of type 2 diabetes.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain common gaps in care regarding the prevention of type 2 diabetes
  • Describe how EHR functionalities can be used to close gaps in type 2 diabetes preventive care
  • Discuss an example of a successful implementation of multiple EHR functionalities designed to facilitate preventive care at a large integrated delivery system
