Brooklyn NY-Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center's primary care program received recognition from the NCQA Diabetes Recognition Program (DRP).  Facilities who achieve DRP Recognition show their peers, patients and others in the community that they are part of an elite group that is publicly recognized for its skill in providing the highest-level diabetes care.  Kingsbrook's region of Central Brooklyn is known as an epi-center for diabetes, one of the highest in New York State.

NCQA developed the Diabetes Recognition Program (DRP) to provide clinicians with tools to support the delivery and recognition of consistent high quality care. This voluntary program is designed to recognize physicians and other clinicians, who use evidence-based measures and provide excellent care to their patients with diabetes. 

The DRP Program has 10 measures which cover areas such as:

  • HbA1c control
  • Blood Pressure control
  • LDL control
  • Eye examinations
  • Nephropathy Assessment
  • Smoking status and cessation advice or treatment  

"This is national recognition that we meet a high standard for patient care in diabetes," says Neil Pasco, M.D., Director of Ambulatory Medicine at Kingsbrook, who oversaw the NCQA certification process. "It lets everyone know that we are giving quality care to our patients with diabetes, and that we can take care of patients in a cost-effective way."

Hospitals recognized by the program show they work closely with patients in areas such as control of blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol, eye exams, kidney assessment and help with quitting smoking.  "Receiving this recognition is a validation of the quality of care being delivered in our primary care ambulatory sites, " says Dr Kodroff, VP of Quality. " It is part of our comprehensive approach to addressing the enormous burden that diabetes represents in our community.  This comprehensive approach includes excellent primary care, specialized care in ophthalmology, podiatry, wound care & hyperbaric, nutrition, and endocrinology."
