Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of mortality for individuals with diabetes. It is also a major contributor to morbidity and direct and indirect costs of diabetes. Studies have shown the benefits of reducing cardiovascular risk factors in preventing or slowing cardiovascular disease. In an effort to align with the National Quality Forum (NQF) endorsed diabetes measures, and referencing the 2013 American Diabetes Association (ADA) guidelines it is recommended that people with diabetes have a blood pressure measured at every routine diabetes visit and that the systolic blood pressure is less than 140 mmHg and the diastolic blood pressure is less than 90 mmHg. This measure assesses the percentage of patients 18-75 whose most recent blood pressure reading within the measurement period is controlled to a rate of less than 140/90 mmHg.
