Join us in the effort to improve care in the Mid-South!
The Diabetes Wellness and Prevention Coalition (DWPC) in collaboration with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center operates the DWPC Registry to track processes and outcomes of care and improve care for people living with diabetes or at risk for diabetes in the Mid-South. The DWPC Registry fully qualifies as a Specialized Registry for the purposes of achieving meaningful use of electronic health records. We have begun accepting data as a specialized registry and will be using the data to improve population health outcomes. The DWPC Registry also undergirds our practice improvement work through the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)-funded Management Of Diabetes in Everyday Life (MODEL) Program. We also provide practice feedback of quarterly practice improvement reports to participating providers.
We are able to receive electronic data generated from certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT) through appropriate secure mechanisms. The DWPC Registry has a registration of intent process that takes clinics and other providers through test and validation and a process to move into production. We provide participating providers with appropriate documentation in order to begin this process and we notify them by email on a regular basis of the status of their feeds to the registry and whether they are currently meeting our criteria for "Active Engagement".
