Diabetes Recognition Digital Measures Pilot​

NCQA is refreshing our Diabetes Recognition Program—that builds on the existing measures and focuses on digitalization. Thank you for agreeing to serve as a pilot participant in NCQA’s work to refresh the program. Pilot participants will play an important role in helping NCQA refine, validate, test and improve the measures and application process for the Diabetes Recognition Program prior to its release later in 2023.

To kick off this work, we are hosting a Diabetes Recognition Digital Measures Pilot webinar on April 24, 2023 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm ET to answer all of your questions and outline the pilot objectives, review the process, measure set, scoring, patient identification methodology and more. If you are unable to attend the live event on April 24th, you should still register for the event so you can access the webinar recording later to view at your convenience. The recording will be available in your NCQA learning management account no later than Friday, April 28, 2023.

Thank you again for your willingness to support this important work. We look forward to seeing you on April 24!
