OBJECTIVE To evaluate an online disease management system supporting patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Engaging and Motivating Patients Online With Enhanced Resources for Diabetes was a 12-month parallel randomized controlled trial of 415 patients with type 2 diabetes with baseline glycosylated hemoglobin (A1C) values ≥7.5%(More)
Preventing cardiovascular events in older persons presents unique challenges to clinicians. Cardiovascular disease accounts for a large amount of disability and mortality in older persons. Older persons are often faced with unique and multiple challenges to health, including cognitive decline, social isolation, financial constraints, and physical(More)
BACKGROUND Case management (CM) is a systematic approach to supplement physician-centered efforts to prevent cardiovascular disease (CVD). Research is limited on its implementation and efficacy in low-income, ethnic minority populations. METHODS We conducted a randomized clinical trial to evaluate a nurse- and dietitian-led CM program for reducing major(More)
Few data exist on the effectiveness of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk-reduction programs in patients with limited access to health care. The objective of this project was to evaluate a disease management approach to multifactor CVD risk reduction in patients with limited or no health insurance and low family income. Patients (n = 148) were recruited from(More)
METHODS Case-management (CM) can positively influence chronic disease care by facilitating guideline-concordant interventions that improve outcomes through intensive, individualized, longitudinal care. Implementation of CM, however, is difficult. We have identified lessons learned from a cardiovascular risk reduction CM program that may aid future CM(More)
In the 1990s a number of randomized controlled trials provided compelling evidence for the importance of aggressively managing hypercholesterolemia. Control of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol reduces cardiac events and stroke in at risk individuals without known cardiac disease and in patients with coronary heart disease. The National Cholesterol(More)
