Abstract
AIMS: A third of the patients with Type 2 diabetes have an advance disease that requires complex pharmacotherapies and advanced expertise, dependent on multiple clinical interactions. Unfortunately, limited providers availability enables only sporadic interactions. Additionally, the expanding Accountable Care Organization (ACO) concept enhances providers' compensation when clinical performance is improving while limiting face-to-face clinic visits.
METHODS: We developed an advanced type 2 specialty clinic model, geared toward frequent remote clinical interventions while limiting face-to-face clinic visits. The model was tested in a 1-year, prospective, randomized controlled clinical trial. N=60, patients were randomized 1:1, to the experimental or standard endocrinology clinics.
RESULTS: Average A1c in the experimental arm decreased from 9.6±0.9% to 7.9±1.3%(p<0.0001). Whereas in the control it decreased from 8.9±0.8% to 8.6±1.9%(non-significant). More patients were treated with statins in the experimental arm compared to the control (93.3% vs. 66.7%; p=0.01). Face-to-face clinic visits occurred 1.5±0.7 times per year in the experimental arm compared to 3.6±4.0 in the control (p<0.0001).
CONCLUSIONS: We believe that the presented model for a modified type 2 diabetes specialty clinic may enhance providers accessibility and patients' outcomes while improving reimbursement in the ACO model.
