Benefits of a Primary Care Clinic Co-Located and Integrated in a Mental Health Setting for Veterans With Serious Mental Illness

This figure shows the proportion of patients attaining cardiovascular disease risk factor goals at each observation window of the Serious Mental Illness Primary Care Clinic (SMIPCC). The rows correspond to each 6-month period examined for the study. Windows T1 and T2 were the 2 successive 6-month periods in the year before enrollment in SMIPCC, and T3 and T4 were the 2 successive 6-month periods of enrollment. See Methods for descriptions of laboratory values that constitute goal attainment. Unmeasured values were considered not at goal. Abbreviations: LDL, low-density lipoprotein; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; BMI, body mass index; HbA1c, hemoglobin A1c.

Figure. Percentage of patients attaining cardiovascular disease risk goals at selected observation windows of the Serious Mental Illness Primary Care Clinic (SMIPCC). Windows T1 and T2 were the 2 successive 6-month periods in the year before enrollment in SMIPCC, and T3 and T4 were the 2 successive 6-month periods of enrollment. P values represent significant differences between pre-enrollment and postenrollment in fully adjusted repeated measures logistic regression analyses. See Methods for descriptions of laboratory values that consitute goal attainment. Abbreviations: LDL, low-density lipoprotein; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; BMI, body mass index; HbA1c, hemoglobin A1c.
