DCMS #134

Last week in our Homerun Slides we started to talk about quality measures in patient care. Whenever we get information about this concept it always revolves around the practitioner, and how good a job we do, but often patient care is dictated by the payor  and the benefits they allow. Our slides this week start with quality measures for health plans and why restrictions on care are slowly changing.

Our Disaster Averted looks at how refusal to admit that you made a mistake as a medical professional can possibly kill a patient, and our Clinical Text helps us to identify when cardiac testing is indicated in patients with diabetes who have underlying CAD. Exercise can be an important tool in helping older patients manage their diabetes, and Sheri Colberg explains exactly how in this week’s Mastery In Minutes video.
