In 2020, NCQA convened a Diabetes and Heart Failure Roundtable with a diverse panel of experts to confront the persistent challenges of care delivery and to drive improvement in the quality of care for patients affected by type 2 diabetes and heart failure. Findings from the discussion are presented in a white paper, Optimizing Care for Patients With Type 2 Diabetes and Heart Failure.

In this episode of Inside Health Care, Dr. Janani Rangaswami, Clinical Associate Professor at Thomas Jefferson University, and Dr. Mary Barton, NCQA’s Vice President of Performance Measurement, chat with NCQA’s Matt Brock about the paper’s findings, barriers to ideal care delivery and strategies for improvement.
