Bridges to Excellence Diabetes Care Recognition Program
More than 22 million Americans have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, and millions more are yet undiagnosed. Almost two million Texas residents over the age of 18 have been identified with diabetes. If you fall into this group, Scott & White Healthcare - Round Rock is proud to announce its participation in the Bridges to Excellence (BTE) Diabetes Care Recognition Program. This national program recognizes medical providers who demonstrate consistent delivery of quality diabetes care that meets established guidelines.
What sets these providers apart?
Eligible clinicians voluntarily apply for BTE recognition by submitting information on how they comprehensively treat and manage their patients with diabetes, and work in concert with other medical specialists in regard to:
- Blood pressure (BP) control
- LDL cholesterol control
- HBA1c control
- Ophthalmologic exam
- Nephropathy assessment
- Podiatry exam
Clinicians who demonstrate high-quality performance based on these measures are awarded BTE Diabetes Care Recognition. Seeking care from a BTE-recognized physician means you are receiving the highest-quality diabetes care and reducing your financial and patient burden of unnecessary hospitalizations and complications due to your disease.
