Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Control Program

CHCANYS is pleased to announce that the Quality and Technology Initiatives (CEI) department is collaborating with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), and other partners, on its Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Control Program (DCPC), to provide health centers with strategies to prevent and manage pre-diabetes, diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol. Health centers will have the opportunity to work with CHCANYS’ experienced Practice Facilitators to strengthen team-culture, while successfully implementing strategies that support DSRIP milestones, meet the criteria for HRSA quality awards, and address PCMH requirements, as well as other incentive programs. This exciting performance improvement opportunity will enable health centers to increase utilization of EHRs and health information technology to enhance provider performance and patient health outcomes. Implemented strategies will support the engagement of non-physician team members to manage chronic disease within clinical settings, and promote adoption of evidence-based QI practices at the provider level.

CHCANYS seeks to partner with health centers able to commit 12 months to transforming their chronic disease workflows from July 2019-June 2020, July 2020-June 2021, July 2021-June 2022, and/or July 2022-June 2023. During this time, CHCANYS will partner with health centers with:

  • On-site Practice Facilitation
  • Remote coaching calls and/or staff training
  • Individualized technical assistance around quality improvement (QI)
  • Help with data strategy building and management
  • Monthly analysis of clinical quality measures
  • Tools and resources from NYSDOH and other expert partners
  • Opportunities to submit and/or present best practices

To learn more about this opportunity and discuss participation, please contact CHCANYS Certified Practice Facilitators Mercy Mbogori at mmbogori@chcanys.org and Meital Fried-Almog at malmog@chcanys.org.
