The Impact of Medicaid Health Homes on patients with diabetes: study design and rationale

New York State’s Medicaid Health Home program, established in 2012, seeks to enhance care and outcomes for low-income patients with complex chronic conditions, such as diabetes, through care management and community-health system collaborations. A team led by investigators at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, including patients and other key stakeholders, will utilize electronic health records from the New York City Clinical Data Research Network, Medicaid data, key informant interviews, and focus groups to study the impact of this policy on processes of care, health outcomes, and racial and ethnic health disparities among patients with diabetes.
