Prediabetes affects more than one third of the United States population, yet there are effective screening tools available. One of the problems identified was that risk factor reduction was not started until after diagnosis. A quality improvement project was implemented using the Plan-Do-Study-Act model over an 8-week time frame. Patients were screened for prediabetes risk. Patients who screened positive used shared decision-making to select treatment. An effective-care checklist graded the visits. The overall effectiveness of prediabetic care increased from 16.7% to 46.7%. Patients benefit from screening to reduce the health care burden of chronic conditions.
