Comprehensive Diabetes Care Project

This population includes EPN patients aged 18 and above with a diagnosis of Diabetes in their Epic Care medical record. Our overall goal is to improve comprehensive diabetes care among EPN patients. We have developed a set of 7 clinical measurements that are monitored and reported on monthly. They are as follows:

Diabetes Care Measure

 EPN Goal

Current Performance

 % Diabetes Patients seen 2 or more times a year >90% 87% - March 2008
 % Diabetes Patients with 2 HbA1c tests in past 12 months >80% 73% - March 2008
% Diabetes Patients with most recent HbA1c < 7.0% >70% 67% - March 2008
 % Diabetes Patients with most recent HbA1c > 8.5% <10% 8% - March 2008
% Diabetes Patients with LDL test in past 12 months >85% 84% - March 2008
% Diabetes Patients with most recent LDL <100 mg/dl >70% 65% - March 2008
 % Diabetes Patients with microalbumin screen or ACEI/ARB in past 12 months >90% 79% - March 2008

 

The achievement of each goal is further supported through a number mechanisms and reports that identify patients who are overdue for appointments, treatment, or tests related to their overall diabetes care.
