Theories of chronic illness self-management stress the importance of one health care provider serving as consultant to the patient as primary decision-maker. This randomized controlled trial has two specific aims: 1. Evaluate impact of a targeted, proactive nurse case management intervention on: a) glycemic control, b) adherence to minimum standards, c) short-term resource utilization, d) veteran satisfaction, and e) short-term patient physiologic and functional outcomes. 2. Estimate expected impact of changes in key processes of care and intermediate outcomes on end-stage outcomes and long-term costs. 246 veterans, at two VAMCs, have been recruited and randomly assigned to the intervention or control groups, and are being followed for approximately 18 months. Data are being collected at baseline and at 18-month follow-up. The primary outcome measure is glycemic control as measured by hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c). Secondary outcomes include serum LDL, veteran satisfaction, functional status, eye and kidney screening, foot integrity, blood pressure, resource utilization and costs. Data will be analyzed using change in the primary and secondary outcome measures over the study period as dependent variables. A Monte Carlo simulation model will estimate the expected long-term benefits of the intervention. This study is in progress. Baseline data will be presented.
