Abstract

Objective: We investigated variations in prevalence rates of potentially preventable diabetes-related hospitalizations between African Americans and Whites using outcome measures selected by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) as prevention quality indicators related to diabetes care. Methods: We analyzed Maryland hospital discharge data for patients in 2012 (n=10,136) with a primary diagnosis of uncontrolled diabetes; short-term complications of diabetes; long-term complications of diabetes; and lower limb amputations. The results were provided in crude data and data adjusted for the Maryland population. Standardized rates (SRs) per 10,000 persons, standardized rate ratios (SRRs), and standardized rates were reported on the adjusted hospital data.
