Brief Summary:
Using a socioeconomic, race/ethnic, and gender-diverse sample of patients who receive diabetes care from a University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) primary care provider (PCP), carry out a randomized-controlled trial of usual care versus an outreach intervention designed to increase guideline concordance with American Diabetes Association (ADA) recommendations for blood pressure, Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and glycosylated hemoglobin (A1c) goals, referrals for retinal exams, and aspirin therapy.Primary hypotheses: The proportion of patients meeting goal will be 10% higher in the intervention compared with control group in the following domains: 1. LDL<100 mg/dL; 2. A1c<7.0%; and 3. Systolic blood pressure<130 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure<80 mm Hg.

Arm Intervention/treatment
No Intervention: Usual Care
Patients continue to receive usual diabetes care without outreach by health promotions staff.
Experimental: Arm 1-Health Promotoin Outreach

Other: Health promotion outreach
Calling patients who are due for diabetes related services, sending them an interventional letter and assisting them in getting over due serves.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Composite Measure of Guideline Concordance [ Time Frame: After 1 year ]

    Composite measure of guideline concordance with 1 point for concordance with each of the following:

    1. hemoglobin a1c less than 7%
    2. ldl cholesterol less than 100 mgs per decaliter
    3. urinary micro albumin measured in preceding 12 months
    4. both systolic bp less than 130 mms mercury & diastolic bp less than 80 mms mercury

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Individual measures of guideline concordance [ Time Frame: After 1 year ]
    Individual measures of guideline concordance. Assessment of the outcome measures of the composite measures separately.
