Supplements and Featured Publications, Opportunities for Improving Attainment of Quality Measures in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Volume 20, Issue 1 Suppl

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc

This supplement to The American Journal of Managed Care reports the results of 2 studies evaluating quality measure attainment in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The first study evaluates the potential financial implications of quality measure attainment in patients with T2DM. The second study reports a post hoc analysis of a randomized controlled clinical trial evaluating the quality measure attainment of patients treated with either canagliflozin 300 mg/day or sitagliptin 100 mg/day in addition to metformin and sulfonylurea. Although further research is necessary, these results may help managed care organizations evaluate the value of improving quality measures associated with T2DM.This supplement was supported by .
