How Do Diabetes Care Outcomes in New York Compare to Mid-Atlantic States and All States?
The State's performance on diabetes care outcomes is assessed through inpatient admissions, some portion of which might be avoidable with better access to excellent ambulatory care in the State. When the State's number of admissions is higher than the Nation's, reductions in avoidable hospitalizations should be feasible. These measures are from the most recent two data years of the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP).
