Testing Cholesterol

What was measured?

What percentage of medical group members, who have diabetes or heart problems, got their cholesterol level checked?

These results are based on a sample of patient administrative records from the medical group or HMO.

Why is it important?

Persons with heart disease or diabetes who have high cholesterol are much more likely to see a worsening of their disease and to have complications like stroke or a heart attack. An important step in good care is to regularly check these patients’ cholesterol levels.
