Diabetes Care Program

The Diabetes Care Program is a diabetes education and monitoring program designed to help Deaconess Health Plan beneficiaries better manage their diabetes. 

People with diabetes who control their blood sugar have been shown to have better outcomes than people who don’t control their blood sugar. 

The Diabetes Care Program is a way for you to learn techniques to control your diabetes by taking advantage of some great diabetes education resources through Deaconess Health System.

MTM Clinic

As part of your Employee Wellness Plan, you may be referred to the Deaconess Pharmacy Medication Therapy Management Clinic.  You will have a one-on-one visit with an experienced pharmacist who will review all your medicines, including vitamins, herbal supplements, and over-the-counter medicines, to ensure that they are safe and effective.  The goal is to help you get the most from your medicines, so the Deaconess pharmacist has special permission from your doctor to adjust your medicines to make them work the best for you.  The pharmacist can also provide education on disease states and explain lab results.
