New study to use electronic medical records to improve care of patients with diabetes

CLEVELAND Case Western Reserve University, in partnership with the MetroHealth Medical Center and The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, has been awarded a $1.5 million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to evaluate whether advanced technology for record keeping and patient empowerment can improve the care and health outcomes of patients with diabetes.
