Closing gaps in care: Diabetic eye exams

Diabetic Eye Exams through April 2018

Northeast Medical Group remains focused on closing gaps in care for our patient population, particularly diabetic retinopathy screening for patients with diabetes on their EPIC problem list. We need your help to close these gaps and achieve our corporate objective of 65% compliance. Through May 2018, NEMG was at 48% compliance.

To help reach our goal, the diabetic eye exam workgroup has created four short e-learnings for you and your staff to use as a resource. Three of the modules focus on proper scanning workflow: scanning correctly to health maintenance; re-indexing a document previously scanned incorrectly to the wrong order; and re-indexing a document previously scanned incorrectly to a consult. The last module reviews the proper workflow for creating an ambulatory referral to ophthalmology.

We hope you find these resources helpful and share them with staff and colleagues. Please use the tools previously provided to each practice (fax back report, MyChart communication and clinician letter to ophthalmologist) to assist with this objective.
