Indicators Individually Reported

ACEI/ARB = angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor/angiotensin receptor blockers; HbA1c=hemoglobin A1c.
aUsed to calculate disease score. Scoring method: the chronic disease management score is calculated for patients suffering from at least 1 of the chronic diseases listed above. Each eligible condition’s maneuvers are assigned a 1 if the maneuver was followed (or 0.5 if HbA1c test in the previous year was done only once rather than twice) or a 0 if it was not. For each condition the ratio of maneuvers followed is estimated. Finally, a simple (not weighted) average of the applicable con
dition scores is calculated to obtain the patient’s chronic disease management score. bTarget blood pressure for patients with diabetes is set at 130/80 mm Hg and 140/90 mm Hg for other patients.
