Project IMPACT: Diabetes
Aggregate data from all 25 participating communities showed statistically significant improvement in A1C (blood sugar) control, a key diabetes indicator. Clinical indicators for cardiovascular health including LDL Cholesterol, Total Cholesterol, and Triglycerides also showed statistically significant improvements. HDL Cholesterol, Blood Pressure and Body Mass Index (BMI) improved, although were not statistically significant in the multilevel modeling statistical analysis that controlled for differences among the communities. These improvements demonstrate that care is being delivered in a way that is consistent with national treatment guidelines and that people are improving their health.
Final results were e-published and appear in the September/October 2014 print issue of JAPhA. The two peer-reviewed articles, collectively highlight the clinical and process outcomes as well as the unique characteristics of the patients and care delivery in the local communities that participated in the project.
