---|---|---|---|

October 2016^{b} (Early Implementation), % | October 2017^{c} (1 year Post), % | October 2018^{d}(2 years Post), % | |

ACE = angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors; ARB = angiotensin-receptor blockers; HEDIS = Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set.

↵a Results shown are simple averages (unweighted) of 3 standard HEDIS indicators: 2 diabetes metrics (hemoglobin A

_{1c}testing, nephropathy screening rates) and 1 medication monitoring metric of ACE/ARB laboratory monitoring.↵b Patient denominator for implementation clinic: n = 232 (diabetes metrics) and n = 364 (ACE/ARB metric); Denominator for comparison clinics: n = 1,952 (diabetes metrics) and n = 4,192 (monitoring metric).

↵c Patient denominator for implementation clinic: n = 342 (diabetes metrics) and n = 570 (ACE/ARB metric); Denominator for comparison clinics: n = 1,909 (diabetes metrics) and n = 4,297 (ACE/ARB metric).

↵d Patient denominator for implementation clinic: n = 427 (diabetes metrics) and n = 663 (ACE/ARB metric); Denominator for comparison clinics: n = 2,390 (diabetes metrics) and n = 5,149 (ACE/ARB metric).
