Diabetes Monitoring

Rising prevalence of diabetes in the U.S. as a medical crisis comes with many additional concerns. Access to monitoring capabilities such as the HbA1c test is incredibly important for preventive care for people with diabetes.

Peer City Perspective

Louisville currently ranks 8th among its peer cities in percentage of diabetic Medicare enrollees receiving the HbA1c test with 87% of enrollees being tested.

Louisville is in the middle tier of its peer group according to a natural breaks algorithm. Cities in green are those that outperform their peers, cities in yellow represent the middle cluster, and those in red are a group that lags behind its peers on this indicator.
