Abstract: We will study the delivery of care to patients with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases from 16 practices in health care organizations who receive incentives for improving the quality of patient care. Half of those will be far along in engaging patients in their care and half will not. We will see whether patients with diabetes or cardiovascular diseases who receive care from practices that more fully involve their patients have better clinical outcomes and satisfaction with their care than those who do not. We expect that these findings will help practices and patients to achieve better outcomes of care.
