Diabetes Care Management

In response to the disproportionate incidence of diabetes in the Bronx, Montefiore Care Management established an intensive Diabetes Care Management program.  Based on the work and experience of Montefiore’s Clinical Diabetes Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Diabetes Research Center, the Diabetes Care Management program highlights treatment initiatives that embody intervention at community, provider and individual levels. The clinical staff of the Diabetes Care Management program employs evidence-based guidelines, standardized performance measures and multi-lingual patient education materials to help patients understand their medical condition, follow their physician’s treatment plans, manage their medications and participate in self-care activities. 

Modeled after programs of Montefiore’s Clinical Diabetes Center, which works closely with the Diabetes Research Center of Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Care Management’s Diabetes Care Management program features evidence-based guidelines, standardized performance measures, multi-lingual patient education materials and healthy eating habits. We strive to help patients understand their medical condition, follow their physician’s treatment plans, manage their medication and participate in self-care activities.
