Patient Centered Diabetes Registry (PCDR)


 

Principal Investigator: Dana P. Goldman, Ph.D.

With the generous support of InHealth (Institute for Health Technology Studies), A team of researchers from the Schaeffer Center and RAND has launched the Patient-Centered Diabetes Registry (PCDR), a longitudinal data collection effort that combines provider and patient surveys with clinical health data.

A number of prominent diabetes centers and community clinics from around the country have been selected for the study. The PCDR will provide new information on different diabetes therapies related to glucose monitoring and insulin delivery and patients’ adherence to treatment. The study will also include analysis of the long-term consequences for different socio-economic groups. Study measures will be both clinical and patient-centered so that, ultimately, the findings will help improve patient health as well as quality of life, workplace productivity and functional status.
