Number of HbA1c tests unrelated to quality of diabetes control: an electronic medical record data linkage study



Number of HbA1c tests unrelated to quality of diabetes control: an electronic medical record data linkage study



Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice 93(1): E37



Process measures are heavily relied on to assess physician performance/quality of diabetes control. A unique primary care electronic medical record-health administrative database linkage found no clinically meaningful relationship between control (HbA1c value) and number of tests performed, casting doubt on the usefulness in diabetes performance and quality of care assessment.
