Blood pressure control and other quality of care metrics for patients with obesity and diabetes: a population-based cohort study.
In this observational population-based cohort study, the investigators sought to examine the relationship between the extent of obesity and the achievement of guideline-recommended blood pressure goals and other quality of care metrics among patients with diabetes. The investigators suggest that although the cardiovascular risk for patients with obesity and diabetes is greater than for non-obese patients with diabetes, they found that patients with obesity are even further behind in achieving blood pressure control.

The impact of a measurement and feedback intervention on blood pressure control in ambulatory cardiology practice.
This study evaluated the impact of a targeted provider feedback intervention on rates of blood pressure control. Providers received quarterly provider-specific reports over a period of one year for a group of 300 patients treated in outpatient cardiology clinic practices. These reports as a stand-alone intervention did not affect overall BP control rates in cardiology clinics.
