    About

    The Diabetes Care Project (DCP) is a coalition of patient advocates and health partners whose goal is to educate patients, caregivers, healthcare providers and policymakers on the value of developing personalized management plans for diabetes patients in an effort to improve each patient’s health outcomes and lower costs for the entire health system.

    Objectives

    • Close the gap between inadequate coverage and accepted standards of diabetes care and management
    • Identify diabetes patient populations at high-risk for disease complications and intervene with diabetes management programs 
    • Demonstrate the value of appropriate diabetes management in achieving positive health outcomes and lowering overall health care costs
