Improve Practice Quality

This section addresses how to go about transforming a practice into a patient-centered medical home (PCMH). It provides practical information about the use in clinical settings of rapid cycle improvements that involve small-scale local tests of change in physician offices or health care organizations. This section also will help users identify evaluation needs related to improving the delivery of diabetes services and how to implement evaluation measurements. A number of resources address how a practice could incorporate diabetes recognition programs, other professional services, and physician accreditation.
