CY 2013 - This rate is based on a low number of patients. Consumers should use many sources in making choices for health care services. For 2013, the data for outcome measures for UNM Medical Group, like Blood Pressure Control, Blood Sugar Control and Cholesterol Control, were collected using electronic medical records (EMR) with limited identifiable patients to pull data from, which is a different methodology from previous years when manual chart reviews were utilized. Consumers should use other sources along with this trend data in making choices for health care services.
