DescriptionDiabetes (DM) management requires health care providers to provide patients with the appropriate amount of time, education and support that are necessary for quality care. Unfortunately, this is often impeded by limited access to resources, particularly in rural communities where DM rates are high and providers are scarce. Therefore, study investigators propose addressing these issues by implementing a model of care that includes diabetes educator (DE)-led planned visits with a real-time videoconferencing telemedicine program for ongoing patient support to improve DM outcomes.
