CINET INC is Accredited by ADCES to Provide Quality Diabetes Self-Management Education
Orange Park Florida — CINET INC. has achieved the significant milestone of accreditation by the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists (ADCES). Accreditation represents a high level of quality and service to the community, and the ability to better meet the needs of Medicare recipients and others affected by diabetes in North Florida.
“We are ecstatic about being able to deliver these services in a format that is flexible and convenient to meet the needs of adults diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in the metropolitan Jacksonville area. We proud of our team of highly skilled and caring educators and support staff”.
The eDSMES program, located at 1406 Kingsley Avenue Suite B1, Orange Park will be offering online and traditional diabetes education sessions. Program delivery is customized for each person. Services are covered by Medicare and private insurance. Interested persons can call (904) 276-8050 to see if we are in-network with their plan.
Diabetes education services utilize a collaborative process through which people with or at risk for diabetes work with a diabetes educator to receive individualized care to help them reach their health goals. Diabetes education is a covered Medicare benefit when delivered through an accredited program.
“Evidence shows diabetes education and support is helping people with diabetes to lower their A1c’s and obtain the knowledge and skills to better self-manage their condition,” said Sacha Uelmen, Director of Accreditation at ADCES. “That is why we need programs like CINET’S eDSMEs to make these services available in their community.”
ADCES is a National Accredited Organization (NAO) for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Accredited programs must meet the 2022 National Standards for Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support; 6 standards that are revised every 5 years by a group of diabetes educators representing both ADCES and the American Diabetes Association and approved by CMS. Programs must maintain compliance with the Standards during the 4-year accreditation cycle.
ADCES, formerly known as the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), is a multi-disciplinary professional membership organization dedicated to improving diabetes care through innovative education, management, and support. With more than 14,000 professional members including nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, exercise specialists, and others, ADCES has a vast network of practitioners working with people who have, are affected by or are at risk for diabetes.
