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.
