Brief Description: To assess physician organizations’ use of diabetes Care Management Practices (CMPs), a telephone survey was used to inquire whether the organization had implemented the following four diabetes CMPs: clinical practice guidelines in conjunction with physician reminder systems, case management, performance feedback to individual physicians, and disease registries. The authors then created a diabetes care management index using these four diabetes CMPs to measure the extent of adoption of diabetes CMPs in each physician organization. The index range was 0–4; an organization received one point for each of the four CMPs adopted. The internal consistency reliability (Cronbach’s alpha) of the diabetes care management index was 0.64.
