Type 2 diabetes is one of the most common, costly, and disabling diseases in the world. Approximately one million patients in Michigan have type 2 diabetes and rates are up to 2x higher for Michiganders who are Black, Latino, or have a disability. At the same time, the implementation of guideline concordant diabetes care lags behind due to challenges with coverage, lack of resources, cost of medications, and lack of support and education. Primary care practices continue to combat staffing issues, lack of resources, and increasing administrative demands. Meanwhile coordination of care for diabetes is confounded by an increasingly-complex healthcare system.
The Michigan Collaborative for Type 2 Diabetes (MCT2D) was established in 2021 to accelerate a new way forward, through collaboration, innovation, and investment in quality, evidence based care for type 2 diabetes. MCT2D strives to remove barriers to guideline concordant care, support participating practices, and keep patients central to quality improvement work.


MCT2D strives to prevent type 2 diabetes and its complications by fostering a collaborative community of clinicians and patients to accelerate the equitable implementation of evidence-based diabetes care for all patients in Michigan.
