27 – A Population Health Management Diabetes Case Study
Diabetes is a major chronic disease that affects individuals of all ages. It is the most common life-threatening, chronic illness for children living in developed countries. Texas Children’s Hospital, a leader in the research and treatment of children with diabetes, evaluates more than 2,500 cases annually with the goal of helping children, adolescents, and young adults to manage their illness effectively—and live long, healthy, and active lives.
Join Texas Children’s to learn how its data-driven approach to population health management for patients with diabetes coupled with the formation of Diabetes Care Process Teams (CPTs) is benefiting its patient population with improved outcomes including 44 percent relative decrease in length-of-stay for patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and 30.9 percent relative reduction in recurrent DKA admissions per fiscal year.
