Estimating the impact of diabetes mellitus on worker productivity using self-report, electronic health record and human resource data.
In this study, the investigators assessed the relationship between diabetes mellitus (DM) and measures of worker productivity, direct health care costs, and costs associated with lost productivity (LP) among health care industry workers across two integrated health care systems. They concluded that the impact of DM was reflected in higher rates of LP and higher indirect costs for employers related to LP and higher health care resource use.
