"The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends team-based care to control type 2 diabetes. Team-based care is a health systems-level, organizational intervention that assigns a multidisciplinary team — including the patient, a primary care provider, and at least 1 other health professional — to help patients:

  • Get appropriate medical tests and exams
  • Use medicines to control and manage risk factors
  • Self-manage their health care and adhere to treatment
  • Make healthy behavior and lifestyle choices

CPSTF found that team-based care improves patients’ blood sugar, blood pressure, and lipid levels."
