Our nation’s healthcare systems represent the front line in the fight to stop diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The Know Diabetes by Heart™ initiative will support quality improvement efforts by engaging directly with hospitals and outpatient clinics to provide long-term support to their teams of professionals as they redesign healthcare to better serve patients with diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
AHA’s Target: Type 2 Diabetes℠ 1 and ADA’s Diabetes INSIDE® initiatives1 are designed to help healthcare organizations better apply clinical guidelines, monitor care processes over time, and use these insights to inform constant and deliberate change to improve the lives of the patients they serve.
