The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) sets standards of certain quality measures to become a Diabetes Recognized Provider (DRP). One of the quality measures is LDL, a particle of cholesterol often referred to as “Bad” cholesterol, because it is implicated in increased risk for heart disease. To meet NCQA requirements as a Recognized provider for this quality measure, a provider has to demonstrate that more than 36% of their patients have measured LDL cholesterol levels that are less than 100 mg/dL.
All DiabetesAmerica Health Centers exceed this with over 70% of established DiabetesAmerica patients maintaining an LDL cholesterol of less than 100 mg/dL. Congratulations to all the team members at DiabetesAmerica for taking excellent care of our patients on a daily basis and exceeding industry standards!
