UMACO Patient Wellness Platform

UMACO Patient Wellness Platform



Diabetes Nutrition and Education Program

Accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators

DID YOU KNOW?
Eighty-six million Americans now have prediabetes—that’s 1 out of 3 adults! Of those 86 million, 9 out of 10 of them don’t even know they have it.

Diabetes education is a collaborative process through which people with or at risk for diabetes gain the knowledge and skills needed to modify behavior and successfully self-manage the disease and its related conditions. The program is comprehensive and taught by diabetes educators who have extensive training.


“Our goal is to help our affiliated physicians provide the best care possible while maximizing opportunities for shared savings, utilizing our common electronic medical record platform to coordinate care delivery,”


Kemal Erkan, Chairman


“Our goal is to help our affiliated physicians provide the best care possible while maximizing opportunities for shared savings, utilizing our common electronic medical record platform to coordinate care delivery,” said Kemal Erkan, CEO, UMACO. “Without Cerner’s health care information technology and support, it would have been difficult to become a Medicare Shared Savings ACO.”

“UMACO’s Diabetes Management & Education Program is exactly the type of program we envisioned when we set up our accreditation in 2009,” said Leslie E. Kolb, RN, BSN, MBA, Accreditation Director for the Diabetes Education Accreditation Program. “AADE’s accreditation assures that an accredited program meets the National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support. Programs who meet this criteria are considered high quality and have been shown to improve the health status of the individuals who embrace the education and help to modify sometimes unhealthy behaviors, or simply provide the education that the person with diabetes has not previously received."


This program is highly recommended to:

◢    Individuals who have been diagnosed with prediabetes or diabetes

◢    Diabetic individuals with no comprehensive health insurance

◢    Diabetic individuals who meets the income guidelines based on Federal Poverty Level
