jessievenegas Jessie Venegas — 11/01/2009

The Massachusetts Chronic Disease Improvement Network assists health care professionals and institutions to improve clinical outcomes for people living with chronic illness. The Network serves as a clearinghouse for resources and information in the management of chronic illness. With this website, the Network links providers across the Commonwealth, supplies technical assistance, and offers a forum for sharing innovative approaches to improve the lives of people with asthma, diabetes and other chronic diseases. The Network’s website includes a section with links to resources and tools to make clinical guidelines and other quality improvement tools work for clinical practices. Flow sheets, culturally competent patient education materials, data tracking tools, and staff training resources are among the many resources found here.
