Using data for targeted inreach

One of the ways we used data was to run a report for patients with an A1c > 9 and who had no insurance. I gave the report to one of our enrollers, who concentrated on getting in touch with those patients. Some of the people in this categories are undocumented, and so we were able to enroll these patients in PRUCOL (People Residing Under Color Of Law) Medi-Cal because they have a serious medical condition. By enrolling in PRUCOL Medi-Cal, these patients can now afford their diabetic medications, and therefore adhere to their care plans.
We are hoping to see these patients will show progress in controlling their diabetes.
