Abstract
PURPOSE: Explore the effectiveness of the patient-centered medical home (PCHM) in managing adult Diabetes Mellitus Type II using HbA1C, lipid levels, blood pressure and body mass index as parameters of care. METHODS: Systemic sampling resulted in a total of 41 patients. The data was evaluated between two intervals (pre-PCMH to 6-months and 1-year post PCMH) RESULTS: BMI and HDL was the indicator with improvements in both intervals. LDL improved during Interval 1. Both Intervals had increased means for HbA1C, SBP, and DBP. CONCLUSION: A PCMH can have some positive effects on reaching some of the goals for diabetes indicators.
