In this section of the Comparing Processes and Outcomes report we invite you to explore the relationship between different dimensions of quality among individuals with diabetes. 

Comprehensive Diabetes Care measures from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and Prevention Quality Indicators from the Agency for Health Resources and Quality (AHRQ) are presented side by side to help understand longitudinal trends between processes of care and important diabetes outcomes.  

Below, we highlight some findings to get you started exploring this topic. You may access the measures using our interactive report to explore them further on your own.

Opportunity for improvement among younger people with diabetes:  Younger adults, ages 18-44, have the lowest rates of HbA1c testing, the poorest HbA1c control and the highest rates of diabetic short-term complications when compared to older groups. Can we be doing more to reduce complications for younger individuals with diabetes?
