TransforMED's Delta-Exchange Teams with Group Practice Forum to Present Free Webinar Series on Diabetes Population Management

Patient-centric approach improves patient communication, office workflow and patient self-management

Leawood, KS (PRWEB) May 27, 2010 -- TransforMED, a national leader in patient-centered medical home transformation, and Group Practice Forum (GPF), an independent network of physician group experts and education professionals, today announced a partnership to deliver patient-centric clinical education to primary care medical practices. Beginning in June, TransforMED and GPF will launch a three-part webinar series titled “The Patient Journey: Aiming for Excellence in Diabetes Care.” The 60-to 90-minute, live and interactive webinars will be hosted on TransforMED’s professional online learning community for primary care, Delta-Exchange. The series is free of charge to members and non-members of Delta-Exchange, however, advance registration is required.

The webinar series will be led by Len Fromer, M.D., FAAFP, Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine at University of California at Los Angeles School of Medicine. Dr. Fromer also serves as Executive Medical Director of GPF. The three-part series on diabetes is designed to provide primary care physicians with simple solutions that can be incorporated into their practices immediately to improve patient care. Future webinars developed through this partnership will explore additional areas of chronic disease management for primary care group practices.

“In today’s changing health care environment, it is imperative that primary care doctors be armed with strategies and information to optimize patient outcomes,” said Dr. Fromer. “Group Practice Forum’s partnership with the experts at TransforMED will provide many opportunities to share patient-centric clinical education with clinicians who are practicing in the medical home model.”

Dates and times for the “The Patient Journey: Aiming for Excellence in Diabetes Care” webinars are as follows:
