Disclaimer: Measures reported by WCHQ healthcare
organizations represent a specific aspect of care in relation to an
evidence-based standard, but are not clinical guidelines and do not establish
standards of care.
This method was chosen because of the benefits it provides to both the patient and the provider.
For the Patient: The American Diabetes Association recommends these three tests to prevent and reduce diabetes complications such as blindness, loss of limb and kidney disease. All three tests should be performed and the test results will help your doctor decide the best diabetes care for you. The All-or-None measure can be used to see how well diabetes care is done where you receive your care.
For the Provider: This method represents a systems perspective emphasizing the importance of optimal care through a patients entire healthcare experience. In addition, this method gives a more sensitive scale for improvement. For those organizations scoring high marks on individual measures, the All-or-None measure will give room for benchmarks and additional improvements to be made.
