The results below represent 27,793 patients with Diabetes.The All-Or-None method is a more complete way of reporting the diabetes measure and has five goals. All five goals must be reached by each patient in order to meet the measure.

Diabetes All-or-None Measures
The Diabetes All-or-None Measures are two separate measures, one for process (optimal testing) and one for outcomes (optimal results). This measure contains five goals. All five goals within the measure must be reached in order to meet that measure. The numerator of each all-or-none measure is collected from the organization's total diabetes denominator.Using the diabetes denominator optimal results includes:
Why use an All-or-None method?
This method was chosen because of the benefits it provides to both the patient and the practitioner. First, this methodology more closely reflects the interests and likely desires of the patient. With the data collected in two scores (optimal testing and optimal results), patients can easily look and see how their provider group is performing on these criteria rather than trying to make sense of multiple scores on individual measures. Second, this method represents a systems perspective emphasizing the importance of optimal care through a patient's entire healthcare experience. Third, 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.Nolan T, Berwick DM.
