COMMUNITY CASE STUDY
State Diabetes Prevention and Control Program Participation in the Health Disparities Collaborative: Evaluating the First 5 Years

The figure depicts a conceptual model showing how complementary federal agencies [Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)] can work together to achieve mutual diabetes mellitus prevention and treatment goals through partnerships in the Health Disparities Collaborative. The illustration reads from top to bottom and identifies two programs, the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) under HRSA and the Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) under CDC, which have partnered in the Diabetes Health Disparities Collaborative. It also identifies the Institute for Health Care Improvement and the Community Health Centers as agencies through which the BPHC participates in the Collaborative and the state-based Diabetes Prevention and Control Programs as the agencies through which the CDC participates in the Diabetes Health Disparities Collaborative.

The Diabetes Health Disparities Collaborative identifies and lists the following chronic care model components: organization, community links, self-management support, decision support, delivery system design, and information services. These chronic care model components encourage the following patient care measures: foot exams, eye exams, flu shots, work to address disparate populations, sharing data and measurements, A1c tests, and wellness.
