The Baton Rouge Clinic is proud to announce that it has become the ninth medical clinic in Louisiana to achieve the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Diabetes Recognition. In achieving this recognition, the Baton Rouge Clinic physicians have met NCQA standards demonstrating the ability to deliver high-quality care to patients with diabetes. The NCQA Diabetes Recognition Program is a voluntary effort to identify clinicians who are capable of providing diabetes care, which is consistent with the comprehensive diabetes care measures within the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®).
Clinicians who achieve this recognition demonstrate to their peers, patients and others in the diabetes community that they are part of an elite group that is publicly recognized for its skill in providing the highest-level diabetes care. “NCQA’s Diabetes Recognition Program honors the vanguard, professionals using the best science to help patients cope with one of modern life’s most pervasive illnesses,” said NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “I commend The Baton Rouge Clinic for providing high quality care and for going the extra mile to help people with diabetes.”
