Diabetes Care Link
Welcome to the Diabetes Care Link! This program falls
within the overall Bridges
to Excellence program, and is sponsored by a coalition
of local employers, health plans and national health
care organizations. It is designed to help you manage
your diabetes and improve your health, by providing
you with information, tools and access to doctors who
deliver high quality diabetes care.
The information used in this program comes from the
National Standards Diabetes Self-Management Education
Program. Organizations such as the American Diabetes
Association and the National Certification Board of
Diabetes Educators have compiled guidelines on the best
quality care for someone with Type II Diabetes.
This information will be integrated into a comprehensive
web site that can act as your personal health care coach
to help you better understand diabetes, support self-care
activities and improve the care you receive from your
doctor. The Diabetes Care Link Program will also offer
you the chance to use a point system to stay motivated.
Look for more information on the Diabetes Care Link
program later this year!
