The comprehensive platform includes multiple modules that empowers patients through a newfound ownership of their healthcare data.
Healthcare providers understand over 99% of the time the patient is on their own. The Native Health Connection allows IHS and Tribal sites the same level of functionality as major health care organizations. When used in concert with a physicians recommended care program, the NHC strives to reduce the onset of complications from chronic diseases such as diabetes by introducing technology to help bridge that 99% gap.
The Actionable Diabetic Analytics is a module is to improve diabetic outcomes by consolidating thousands of pieces of information into a simple to use dashboard. With a single glance, a provider will be able to quickly analyze the state of their diabetic patients based on standards established by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
NCQA developed the Diabetes Recognition Program (DRP) to provide clinicians with tools to support the delivery and recognition of consistent high quality care. This voluntary program is designed to recognize clinicians who use evidence-based measures and provide excellent care to their patients with diabetes.
The DRP Program includes measures which cover areas such as:
- HbA1c control
- Blood Pressure control
- Eye examinations
- Nephropathy Assessment
- Smoking and Tobacco Use and cessation advice or treatment
Those who achieve DRP Recognition show their peers, patients and others in the Diabetes community that they are part of an elite group that is publicly recognized for their skill in providing the highest-level diabetes care.
