Dr. Shaw Recognized By NCQA For Diabetes Awareness
Dr. Garrett Shaw, family medicine physician at Gothenburg Health, was recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a successful applicant to the Diabetes Recognition Program.
“Obesity and diabetes are an epidemic,” said Dr. Shaw. “I feel strongly about helping people to try to avoid complications from these diseases.”
NCQA Diabetes Recognition Program recognizes clinicians who have met standards demonstrating delivery of high-quality care to patients with diabetes.
“We commend Dr. Shaw for the care he provides to our patients,” said Mick Brant, CEO, Gothenburg Health. “He is a testament to our mission of promoting wellness and quality of life in our service communities.”
The NCQA Diabetes Recognition Program is a voluntary effort to identify clinicians who provide diabetes care consistent with the comprehensive diabetes care measures within the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set.
“For a person with diabetes, the right clinician can make the difference between living with diabetes as opposed to suffering from diabetes,” said Margaret E. O’Krane, President, National Committee for Quality Assurance. “By earning recognition, Garrett Shaw, MD has demonstrated that he provides effective, evidence-based care to his patients with diabetes.”
