Cross-sectoral collaboration in type 2 diabetes management in Denmark
To optimize medical care, Danish guidelines for type 2 diabetes emphasize cross-sectoral collaboration. Risk stratification is recommended as a model of organizing care in terms of distributing tasks and responsibilities between primary and secondary healthcare sectors. Collaboration between the sectors is expected to be beneficial for patients and ensure rational utilization of resources. Challenges such as inter-sectoral communication, sharing of data and unambiguous responsibility underline the need for continuous optimization of the organization of cross-sectorial diabetes management.
