Abstract

Among the lessons St. Joseph Medical Center learned in implementing a diabetes care management program were that: There is a sound business case for quality with such a program.

Deploying dwindling resources to simultaneously improve care and the organization's bottom line requires collaboration between clinicians and finance.
