Using an automated method to prospectively identify diabetic patients, we measured the impact of an administrative policy to perform LDL-cholesterol (LDL-c) testing on all diabetics not having the test performed within a specified time period. Automatic testing resulted in significant increases in LDL-c testing rate, and identified a greater proportion of patients who were candidates for statins. Further interventions are needed to increase prescriptions for lipid-lowering therapy.
