This study will conduct a randomized clinical trial in persons with diabetes to determine if a community-based support system facilitates diabetes self-management. Participant support and health promotion (D-HEP) will improve diabetes control and reduce health care utilization and charges among Medicaid and dual enrolled Medicare-Medicaid beneficiaries.
Impact of a Quality Management Intervention Upon Foot Care Outcomes
This study is part of a VHA quality improvement initiative. The purpose of the study is to look at the relationship between the organization of foot care systems and outcomes for veterans with diabetes. The primary objectives are to describe facility-level variations in structural features, amputation rate, ulcer rate, quality of clinician- provided diabetes foot care, and patient-reported foot care practices; and, evaluate variations in case severity across facilities.
