MHP Diabetes Clinic has achieved the significant milestone of accreditation
by the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists (ADCES).
Accreditation represents a high level of quality and service to the community,
and the ability to better meet the needs of Medicare recipients and others
affected by diabetes in the Southeast Indiana area.
The MHP Diabetes Clinic strives to provide individualized education and
support that empower all persons affected by diabetes to better manage
their disease process, avoid complications and achieve optimal health
outcomes. Our compassionate team of Diabetes Care and Education Specialists
understand the many stressors that come with living with diabetes and
are committed to helping provide the resources, support, and knowledge
needed to live well with Diabetes.
Diabetes education services utilize a collaborative process through which
people with or at risk for diabetes work with a diabetes educator to receive
individualized care to help them reach their health goals. Diabetes education
is a covered Medicare benefit when delivered through an accredited program.
“Evidence shows diabetes education and support is helping people
with diabetes to lower their A1c’s and obtain the knowledge and
skills to better self-manage their condition,” said Sacha Uelmen,
Director of Accreditation at ADCES. “That is why we need programs
like MHP Diabetes Clinic to make these services available in their community.”
ADCES is a National Accredited Organization (NAO) for the Centers for Medicare
and Medicaid Services (CMS). Accredited programs must meet the 2017 National
Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support; 10 standards
that are revised every 5 years by a group of diabetes educators representing
both ADCES and the American Diabetes Association and approved by CMS.
Programs must maintain compliance with the Standards during the 4-year
