Adescription of the regulation

Themultiple chronic conditions are increasingly becoming a major medicaland public health challenge. It has been associated with substandardhealth outcomes as well as the constantly increasing health care cost(Parekh, 2012). Regardless of the consistent escalation of thisproblem, health services have continued to be delivered throughoutmoded approaches that mainly concentrate on individual diseasesrather than the various chronic diseases. The need for improvedpolicy and procedures for this conditions is imminent. Thisregulation will ensure a chronic care model that will offer chronicdisease patients particularly those with type 2 DM with procedures ofself-care as well as tracking systems (Parekh, 2012). It will involvethe new electronic health system that will facilitate the collectionof simple data, which will be used in improving the quality of carethat is provided in the health systems at all levels.

Whythere is a need for this regulation

Patientswith chronic conditions including diabetes have in the recent pastcontinued to live well into older age. At this stage of life, theevidence previously obtained from the clinical trials is in mostcases missing (Baptista, Wiens, Pontarolo, Regisr, &amp Christine,2016). There is, therefore, the need to improve the quality of careprovided to chronic condition patients by ensuring their optimumcoordination between the teams of physicians as the patients gothrough the various transitions stages of their life. The need tosupport the various levels of engagement in the cause of advancingpolicy change for the benefit of patients suffering from chronicconditions is necessary. The tremendous effects that physicalinactivity, obesity, and smoking continue to have on the wellbeing ofpatients with these chronic conditions, hence efforts to address andamend the determinants of these problems at the societal level(Institute, 2014). Considering the constricted sphere of clinicalpractice guidelines, the use evidence level grading to exerciserecommendations will greatly assist in identifying areas that needimprovement on their regulations.

Communicatingand implement this regulation

Theregulation needs to be evaluated and accepted by the involvedstakeholders before it is communicated and implemented at all levelsin the healthcare sector. The most effective way of communicatingregulations is through workshops that involve all stakeholdersincluding the patients and their caregivers. However, informationabout industry modifications is done by the regulatory agencies inthe sector (Grimm, 2014). They should be well documented in thepracticing guidelines for both the nurses and physicians to ensurethey are implemented and adhered to the letter. The managerialsystems put in place in the various healthcare organizations aremandated with overseeing the implementation of the regulation at thefacility level.

Thebasis for determining regulatory compliance

Individualsaccessing the system are protected by the healthcare standards andregulations, which are essential in ensuring they are given safehealthcare (Grimm, 2014). The facilities, as well as thepractitioners, are monitored by the regulatory agencies that ensurequality services and legal compliance. The rules and regulations inthe health sector are often established by local, state and federalagencies. They are the basis for determining regulatory complianceand hence it is compulsory for them to oversee the sector`scompliance with any regulations. There are agencies that provideaccreditation, however, they are not compulsory but play an importantrole since they rank and provide certification of quality (Institute,2014). They, therefore, play the important role of additionaloversight, making sure that health care organizations adhere to thehealth regulations and provide quality care.
