T2G Diabetes Bundle Best Practices Learning Collaborative
The T2G Diabetes Bundle Best Practices Learning Collaborative offers AMGA member organizations enrolled in the T2G campaign the opportunity to augment their quality improvement work and accelerate the pace of improvement. This Collaborative is an expansion of AMGA’s successful six-month pilot initiative which sought to improve outcomes on the T2G Core Track bundle measure:
- HbA1c control (<8%)
- Blood pressure control (<140/90)
- Lipid management
- Medical attention for nephropathy
In the pilot, the rate of improvement for the bundle measure among the pilot groups was twice that of other groups participating in T2G.
While substantial improvement in diabetes care has been demonstrated by the organizations participating in T2G, the average diabetes bundle compliance is currently only 39.5% (2018 Quarter 2). The T2G campaign average for the bundle measure—with its four components—has improved from 30.5% at its inception to 39.5%, but there remains much room for improvement.
The Collaborative provides access to peer organizations, an Advisory Committee of clinical experts, and AMGA staff to 10 organizations that have a need to improve their diabetes bundle measure and the motivation and resources to improve. It utilizes the proven, successful framework of AMGA Foundation’s Best Practices Learning Collaboratives with an intensive focus over a 12-month period (May 2019 - May 2020).
