In the United States, more than 25.8 million people have diabetes. Family physicians know the burden that diabetes can cause for patients and their families. Often, it seems the bulk of diabetes visits are spent urging patients to make lifestyle changes that will result in improved outcomes and, in turn, help them feel better. But what changes can you make to improve outcomes? METRIC® aims to help you identify changes—big or small—in your practice that will make life better for your patients who have diabetes and for you.

Identify changes that will improve the lives of your diabetic patients, and your practice, through this METRIC diabetes module. It takes you step by step through a performance improvement project aimed at improving patient diabetes care. This program uses your own patient data to evaluate your current quality of patient care and to compare with your peers. It helps you develop an action plan and offers tips, templates and resources to implement that plan, then measures the improvement to patient outcomes. Access to this online performance improvement program is available from any computer and allows you to work individually at your own pace or with other physicians in a group. The program can be used in large quality improvement initiatives across multiple practice sites and METRIC program staff is available to create group data reports and provide other administrative group needs.

METRIC is also a valuable tool for residency program tracking and quality improvement, eliminating project design time on your part. This program builds critical skills in practice-based learning and improvement, an ACGME requirement for residency programs.

This METRIC module will take a minimum of three months to complete. To meet the ABFM Family Medicine Certification Performance Improvement Activity requirement, it must be completed within 12 months.
