Aim(s) or purpose: The GPSPB a Network of Health Professionals in the Beaune Area is a primary care network created February 2002. It covers a population of over 77,000 people and gathers together 123 health professionals. One of the health priorities of the network concerns diabetes. The aim of the study was to evaluate the overall satisfaction of patients with the diabetes care they receive and to measure the medico-economic impact of coordinated care
Design and method: To follow up satisfaction questionnaires sent to patients with diabetes who applied to the GPSPB from April 2006 to the end of December 2007 (48 people). To study the evolution of relevant biomedical data (HbA1c, LDL, BMI) to assess the efficacy of care in 52 patients with type 2 diabetes from April 2006 to May 2008. To compare diabetic patients managed by the GPSPB with other diabetic patients in Côte d’Or in terms of quantitative data.
Results: 62 % of patients responded to the questionnaire, and overall the level of satisfaction was high, particularly regarding the combined dietetics and podiatry consultation. Most diabetic patients were stabilized or had seen improvements in their results over this period of time. There was a significant decrease in LDL (-0.16 g / L), p Conclusions: This study shows that in chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, it is possible to improve management of patients thanks to the creation of more efficient patient-centred care networks.
