Diabetes

  • Chronic Disease Management

  • Good chronic disease management requires:

  • awareness of your patient demographics, ‘what’s affecting who?’

  • knowledge of the specific disease state, ‘what is it all about?’

  • program / plan, ‘how am I going to do it?’

  • up-to-date resources incl. templates, ‘what am I doing with it?’

  • recall and reminder system, ‘what now?’


Diabetes

Awareness

Knowing your patients/demographics.

  • General awareness, eg. aging area v younger population, this will affect who you are targeting and how you will target.

  • PENCAT Tool, and some data extraction through clinic software…

    Knowledge

    Having an understanding about the disease state.

  • Background understanding is a great place to start, increasing on your knowledge increases the amount you can impart with a patient. Transitions from being an ‘information session’ to a time of providing education.


Diabetes

Program / Plan

  • How much time has the clinic dedicated to care planning

  • What resources are available eg, room and equipment

  • Are reception staff involved /aware?

  • All all GP’s involved in care planning?

  • How many patient’s will be seen per session, how are they going to be followed up with GP?


Diabetes

  • Resources

  • Patient handouts – some will take home information and read it…

  • Direct patients to various websites – some are interactive…

  • Posters & models – some people are more visual/textual learners

  • Don’t be shy about asking for patient information, but also don’t be shy about not taking it either…

  • Templates – do they fit your practice?

  • Medical software has some available, as well as local divisions GPNS, ANPGP… Also, you can develop your own.


Diabetes

  • Templates

  • Explained the steps involved, and the patient has agreed

  • Identify and/or confirm diagnosis

  • Agreed management goals

  • Identified agreed actions

  • Identified treatment options / services (TCA)

  • Date for review.


Diabetes

Billing

Item numbers are there to be billed.

Medicare has documented the item number / billing information in a complicated manner… Ultimately:

New Plan + TCA - 721 + 723 + 10997

Review - 732 + 732 + 10997

Review + Diabetes Cycle of Care - 732 + 732 + 10997 + 2517

New Plan + TCA + Cycle of Care + ECG - 721 + 723 + 10997 + 2517 + 11700


Diabetes

  • Recalls

  • Medicare suggests reviewing patients every 6 months, but item numbers are claimable at 3 months.

  • A recall system is something that needs to be tailored to each clinic, but some things to consider may include:

  • staff availability, who is generating letters, making phone calls

  • patient preference, do they respond to letters or phone calls better
