In August 2019, NACHC’s Quality Center conducted an environmental scan of diabetes efforts among primary care associations (PCA) and health center controlled networks (HCCN) nationally. NACHC sent a set of questions to 57 organizations (23 PCAs, 14 standalone HCCNs, and 20 PCAs with an HCCN designation) to better understand existing diabetes initiatives at the local, state, and national levels. Forty-four organizations (77%) responded. This included 20 PCAs, 7 standalone HCCNs, and 17 PCAs with an HCCN designation in 40 states and the District of Columbia. The question set gathered details on the focus of diabetes work, funders, partners, and obstacles in implementing diabetes initiatives. In addition, NACHC asked participants of the scan to provide input on their efforts around a specific set of evidence-based interventions presented in NACHC’s Diabetes Change Package to potentially serve as resources in upcoming NACHC educational offerings.
