NYSHealth Diabetes Campaign: Health Care Provider Stories
Providers from across New York State share their stories about earning national recognition for providing excellent diabetes care from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) or Bridges to Excellence (BTE) programs through the NYSHealth Diabetes Campaign.
The NYSHealth Diabetes Campaign has made great progress in getting a critical mass of primary care providers to deliver excellent diabetes care: the Foundation's goal is for at least 3,000 providers to attain NCQA or BTE diabetes recognition, an indicator that clinicians are delivering the best care and achieving good outcomes for patients.
Learn more about how providers can apply for funds to help achieve recognition through NYSHealth’s Meeting the Mark: Achieving Excellence in Diabetes Care request for proposals (RFP). Through this RFP, NYSHealth will award $2,500 per physician who achieves recognition. View a full list of providers who have achieved diabetes care recognition through the Campaign.
