Improving Chronic Disease Management with PIECES

Miguel Vazquez, M.D., Medical Director of Kidney Transplantation and Professor of Internal Medicine, has received one of three new research awards that will address the growing proportion of the U.S. population with multiple chronic medical conditions. Funded through the National Institutes of Health’s Health Care Systems (HCS) Research Collaboratory, this trial will use a medical information tool called PIECES  to implement a collaborative model between primary and subspecialty care in patients with multiple chronic conditions: diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, and hypertension.
