Publication Date: February 13, 2019


Description

Given the prevalence of diabetes among health center patients, the impact that poor control has on quality of life, health outcomes,mortality, and costs, and the salutary effects better management yields, the Health Resources and Services Administration, Bureau ofPrimary Health Care (HRSA BPHC) has launched a diabetes quality improvement strategy to support advancement of diabetes prevention and management. This strategy is designed to improve diabetes prevention efforts through increases in the percentage of adults and children who receive weight screenings and counseling. With respect to diabetes treatment and management, HRSA BPHC’s strategy aims to reduce the proportion of patients with poor diabetes control as measured by hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) greater than 9% and increase the proportion of health centers that meet the Healthy People 2020 goal for uncontrolled diabetes for each racial/ethnic group. The American Diabetes Association’s (ADA) Standards of Medical Care in Diabetes grounds this improvement strategy in sound clinical evidence.
