Abstract

Although cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of mortality in people with type 2 diabetes, CVD risk factors are undertreated in this population. The communication of individualized CVD risk to patients before clinical encounters may facilitate the discussion of CVD risk between patients and health care providers and lead to more timely therapeutic intensification. This article presents a CVD risk communication intervention designed for an urban primary care population, utilizing an electronic health record system. Preliminary analyses indicate that the intervention increases the likelihood of patients discussing CVD risk with their physicians and makes it easier for them to participate in these discussions.
