Burgess Partners with Dunlap Library and Clinic to Offer Diabetes Telehealth Program
The Diabetes Department at Burgess Health Center offers a new telehealth support program for patients with type 2 diabetes and limited access to specialty care and self-management programs. The Dunlap library and the Burgess Family Clinic in Dunlap are providing access and support to telehealth visits on site.
“Our hope with this new telehealth option is to make it easier for persons with diabetes to talk with a diabetes educator without the added expense and hassle of travel,” said Sue McLaughlin, Diabetes Care and Education Specialist at Burgess. “This will help give the support and information to care for your diabetes.”
Telehealth programs offer an opportunity for providers to improve access to care for underserved populations, boosting care management plans that will enhance outcomes and reduce costs. They can also be a critical piece of Diabetes Prevention Programs, which help those at risk of developing type 2 diabetes through counseling and health and wellness education.
