A1C Reduction in a Family Medicine Outpatient Clinic
Project Description: Hemoglobin A1C is an important indicator of diabetes control. Studies have shown that more frequent patient-provider encounters may lead to faster A1C improvement. Additionally, moving from a reactive care delivery system to a proactive care delivery system has been shown to improve patient outcomes. In this project, the electronic health records of patients at UF Family Medicine: Haile Plantation clinic will be used to identify diabetic patients with hemoglobin A1C values that indicate poor diabetes control. A team-based approach will be used to enhance these patients' relationships with clinic providers in order to improve diabetes control.
