Dallas-Fort Worth Business Group on Health Releases Report on the State of Diabetes in Texas
Date:12/17/2007

s the state with Dallas seeing the largest increase of diabetes patient claims in 2006, up 28 percent from the year before; Austin had the second highest increase of 24 percent; Fort Worth saw an increase of ten percent; San Antonio had the smallest increase of less than two percent; and only Houston experienced a decrease in the number of diabetes patient claims, with nine percent fewer than the year before.

-- The cost of care varies from city to city, with Dallas having the most expensive charges for outpatient diabetes care among the five markets profiled in the report. In contrast, outpatient diabetes care in San Antonio is relatively inexpensive.

-- Utilization rates for diabetes-related tests in Fort Worth and San Antonio were similar to Dallas, suggesting a similar level of diabetes care quality.

-- Only in Austin did professional charges for outpatient diabetes care decline in 2006 to $1,404 per patient per year, compared to $1,818 the year before.

Texas lags the nation in use of recommended diabetes services

The report also examined utilization of diabetes care management services such as A1c (a test that helps doctors understand how well a diabetes patient's treatment plan is working), glucose and cholesterol tests, and eye exams. These tests are useful measures of diabetes care quality and also a key focus of the DFW Value-Driven Health Care Collaborative diabetes care improvement initiative.

The Texas Type 2 Diabetes Report 2007 is a valuable resource for Texas employers, health plans and providers to promote effective diabetes care management strategies to avoid complications and the onset of other health problems.
