This is a Congressionally mandated study. In the original study, 16 demonstration programs provided care coordination services to beneficiaries with chronic illness in Medicare's fee-for-service program. A five-year CMS-funded study tested whether the programs can improve patients' use of medical services, improve patients' outcomes and satisfaction with care, and reduce Medicare costs. The study also assessed physicians' satisfaction with the programs. In 2008 Congres...
Objectives: The primary objective of the research project is to investigate how declining health status influences the end-of-life (EOL) treatment preferences in Latino Medicare beneficiaries with cancer and to examine if and how these preferences are modified by predisposing characteristics (i.e., acculturation, education, medical mistrust, perceived racism) and/or provider-related characteristics (i.e., ethnicity, language used, provision of interpreters, or patient na...
The Pitt Retiree Study (PRS) disseminates a novel, yet practical, diabetes prevention program among Medicare eligible adults in Western Pennsylvania. This study will provide 4, and 12 month outcome data (with a no treatment follow-up assessment at 24 months) to help determine whether a continued contact group telephone intervention is feasible and effective in enhancing health outcomes and physical functional ability in high risk adults (aged 65-80) with obesity and cardiometab...
The IDEATel study is a multicenter randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy, acceptability, and cost-effectiveness of telemedicine case management to provide diabetes care to elderly Medicare beneficiaries residing in medically underserved areas of New York State.
In 1998, The Canadian Diabetes Association published guidelines that recommended women diagnosed with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM,) should be screened postpartum for Type 2 diabetes using a glucose tolerance test. We determined the rate of screening for Type 2 diabetes at the Ottawa Hospital before and after the publication of this guideline and found that none of the women in either period had been screened following this recommendation. We believe a reminder letter o...
This will be a randomization of two groups of obese pregnant women into early screening for diabetes mellitus at the time of their first or subsequent prenatal visits before 20 weeks of gestation versus standard time of screening for diabetes at 24 - 28 weeks as it is done for all pregnant women. The perinatal outcomes between the two groups will be compared to determine whether early screening for diabetes in all obese pregnant women has a clinical merit or significant.
Test the feasibility of performing worksite screening of Hypertension, Diabetes and Hyperlipidemia for six months
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has awarded cooperative agreements to 6 sites from across the country (Salt Lake City, UT, Molokai, HI, Houston, TX, Newark, NJ, Detroit, MI, and Baltimore City) to participate in a national 4-year demonstration (September 15, 2006 to September 30, 2010). One goal of the demonstration is to reduce disparities in cancer screening among seniors from U.S. racial and ethnic minority populations. Each site will focus on a specific...
Our study will assess if there is a difference in incidence of gestational diabetes using different screening approaches, either using a one-step approach with a 2 hour glucose tolerance test or using a two-step approach. Prior studies have proven similar incidences including a randomized controlled trial.
For some years, the investigators observe an increase of the arisen of diabetes in cystic fibrosis patients However, this diabetes may be reversible. The investigators speak about " Cystic fibrosis related diabetes.". The objective of this project, is to know better what facilitates the appearance and the reversibility of the diabetes, such as the genetic mutations, the respiratory state and the lung infections. Theses knowledges should allow to adapt the screening of diabetes,...
This add-on study of providing tobacco, alcohol and other drug screening, brief intervention and referral for treatment to a primary care high risk diabetic population leverages the existing research resources of a funded parent project "Duke University CMS Innovation Award Southeastern Diabetes initiative (PI: Robert M. Califf, MD)" to explore the feasibility of implementing Screening for substance use, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment services in Primary Care (SB...
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the relationship between serious mental illness and the detection and management of diabetes and pre-diabetic conditions. Patients who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia are at an increased risk for developing diabetes and pre-diabetic conditions such as impaired glucose tolerance and impaired fasting glucose. In addition, novel antipsychotics have also been linked to impaired glucose metabolism and increased incidence of d...
Monogenic diabetes accounts for 1-2% of diabetes cases, although it is often misdiagnosed as either type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes. Knowledge of the genetic etiology of diabetes enables more appropriate treatment, better prediction of disease progression, screening of family members and genetic counseling. These monogenic diabetes result from gene mutations that reduce beta-cell function. To date, about 20 genes involved in insulin-secretion pathway hav been identified; the...
