Diabetes Dashboard

 
The Midwest Health Initiative (MHI) is a regional health improvement collaborative that maintains a data asset with medical and pharmacy claims for over 2 million commercially-insured lives in Missouri, Illinois, and Kansas. With guidance from BHC members, MHI produced the data dashboard below to provide employers with commercial benchmarks for prediabetes and diabetes claims metrics in the St. Louis region.
