This analysis from NYSHealth and the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) examines the role of diabetes in driving costly health care utilization in New York State.

Diabetes is a key factor in emergency department use and hospital admissions and readmissions. Moreover, many patients with diabetes do not receive the routine care and screenings they need to manage their condition and prevent complications. Changes in health care delivery and payment systems could help reduce avoidable health care costs and improve care for patients with diabetes.
