Joslin's Web-based Diabetes Registry and Risk Stratification System
This system is based on evidence-based clinical guidelines and helps providers identify and intervene with patients who are most likely to develop costly and debilitating diabetes-related complications. The system stratifies patients by risk and recommends care management and education interventions at point-of-care. Reports provide data for benchmarking and making regional comparisons for all of the key diabetes-related performance measures commonly recognized by Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS) and the American Medical Association (AMA). The program reports improvement in a variety of process and outcome measures.11
