Program addresses growing need for improved diabetes care.

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) announced a new partnership with The Leapfrog Group to launch a national designation program that will recognize hospitals demonstrating a strong commitment to the safety and well-being of inpatients who are living with diabetes.

The new designation program, named Recognized Leader in Caring for People Living with Diabetes, will help identify hospitals that lead the nation in dedication to people living with diabetes. The program operationalizes the ADA’s expertise and its Standards of Care in Diabetes—2023 for the treatment of patients with diabetes, along with Leapfrog’s experience in rating and designating hospitals based on their performance on national quality and safety measures. Recognized Leader in Caring for People Living with Diabetes will evaluate hospitals based on their care for patients with diabetes during admission, stay, and discharge.  

Hospitals interested in applying can sign up now to get information on the new national standards and application process once available in September.
