Conshohocken, PA (PRWEB) June 16, 2014
Garry Welch, Ph.D., Director of Behavioral Medicine Research at Baystate Medical Center and Research Associate Professor at Tufts University School of Medicine will present at the American Diabetes Association’s 74th Scientific Sessions, June 13-17, 2014 in San Francisco California.
Welch’s presentation will be part of a symposium on Tuesday, June 17, 7:30-9:30 a.m., entitled “Back to the Future—Diabetes Education in the Changing Health Care Environment,” dedicated to discussing new directions of diabetes education.
“There is finally a political will to move toward more proactive, more patient-centered models that focus on wellness and prevention,” said Welch.
Welch will discuss the features of the Comprehensive Disease Management Program (CDMP), a program that was created with Welch and a consortium of healthcare groups and developed by Estenda Solutions Inc. CDMP presents a dashboard of patient information, including lab results, medication records, medical history, procedures, glucose readings, medication adherence information, and more, that helps Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE) provide more timely and useful reports to healthcare providers. The web-based application gives providers and diabetes care managers a more comprehensive view of the patient, allowing them to provide the most efficient, cost-effective diabetes care.
