November is National Diabetes Month sponsored by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 30 million Americans have diabetes and an additional 84 million have prediabetes. Along with OCHIN’s suite of tools and resources to help manage diabetes, OCHIN is expanding its scope to focus on upstream preventive interventions. In 2020, we plan to roll out a collaborative-wide campaign sponsored by HCCN, to encourage members to work together in a focused effort to improve performance on diabetes prevention and control across the board.
OCHIN Research is proud to announce the funding of two exciting research projects: one in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI), and the other with Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Department of Family Medicine. These projects will be examining use of the EHR for latent tuberculosis surveillance and intervention, and multimorbidity among middle and older-aged adults in community health centers.
