I specialize in Internal Medicine-especially outpatient medicine. Although trained in thorough complete physical exams and well care, my strengths are in prevention, outcomes management, and the long-term management of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, chronic lung disease, ischemic and valvular heart disease.

NCQA Certified in Diabetic Care
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (www.ncqa.org) is a national organization that monitors and publishes the quality of care by physicians, groups, hospitals and universities. Because of his electronic medical records, Dr. Markey can demonstrate his quality data "metrics" - monitored aspects of care to the Michigan Quality Improvement Consortium, which is now known as the Medical Quality Improvement Consortium nationally. De-Identified data is sent securely over the internet daily to the MQIC which analyzes and compares Dr. Markey's metrics to other physicians, groups, hospitals and universities. Reports can be made from these data for the purpose of demonstrating quality and deficiencies. These data are then referred to the NCQA. If certain standards are met, then the NCQA certifies a doctor as providing high-quality care according to national standards.
Diabetes Mellitus was the first project chosen by the NCQA. Future projects include: 1) Heart/Stroke, 2) Hypertension, 3) Preventative Care, 4) Coronary Artery Disease, 5) Heart Failure and 6) Myocardial Infarction. Dr. Markey is and has already acquired his data in these categories as an ongoing process and can print out reports comparing himself with others around the country. He compares quite favorably to his peers. When the NCQA takes up other projects, he will be ready for certification. For more information see www.mqic.org.
Elected to American College of Physicians
Because of his primary training at Emory Medical School and continuing education, as well as his participation in quality improvement programs and education programs, Dr. Markey was elected as a member of the American College of Physicians (A.C.P). This is the national group representing Internal Medicine physicians.
