Joslin/BIDMC Diabetes Programs
Collaboration Between Two World-Class Institutions
BIDMC, together with Joslin Diabetes Center, provides patient-centered care to treat and manage diabetes. The two institutions also help educate patients and their families.
BIDMC and Joslin collaborate on a number of programs, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease, eye care for those with diabetes, kidney and pancreas disease, high-risk pregnancy and obesity. The collaboration means that patients receive more efficient and effective care. It also means physicians share electronic clinical information, coordinate medical consults across departments, and work as one multidisciplinary team to help patients.
Community-based care is the heart of our mission, and BIDMC and Joslin provide innovative resources for community-based physicians and patients.
