NYS Diabetes Campaign
The New York State Diabetes Campaign is a five-year, $35 million initiative launched by the New York State Health Foundation to reverse the diabetes epidemic in the state.
Together We Can Reverse the Diabetes Epidemic
Improve clinical care and patient outcomes
The Campaign promotes the adoption of clinical best practices at community health centers, hospital outpatient departments, and private practices to improve the access to and quality of primary care for patients with diabetes. This work ensures that people with diabetes receive the right care, at the right time, in the right setting, and at the right cost to achieve the best health outcomes.
The Campaign supports community-based strategies to identify New Yorkers with diabetes who do not know they have the disease, support people in managing their diabetes, and link people to clinical care and promote healthy eating and physical activity.
The Campaign advocates for private and public payment policies that enable providers to deliver more comprehensive, coordinated care for patients with diabetes. It also supports community-based policy strategies, such as making nutritious foods and recreation spaces more available.
Earn Incentives and Receive Technical Assistance As You Achieve Diabetes Recognition
NYACP, as one of the New York State Health Foundation’s Diabetes Campaign clinical partners, continues to offer opportunities that encourage members to improve their diabetes care and outcomes and to achieve NCQA DRP Recognition. This year, the Chapter will provide technical assistance, underwrite the NCQA application fees and provide a $1,000 incentive to 40 eligible solo practitioners (sole proprietors) to achieve Diabetes Recognition Program certification.
Contact Lisa Noel, NYACP Manager, Practice Support Services to learn if you are eligible.
