Indigenous primary health care: PI24b-Proportion of regular clients with Type II diabetes whose blood pressure measurement result was less than or equal to 130/80 mmHg, 2020–2021

Identifying and definitional attributes

Metadata item type:Indicator
Indicator type:Indicator
Short name:PI24b-Proportion of regular clients with Type II diabetes whose blood pressure measurement result was less than or equal to 130/80 mmHg, 2020–2021
METeOR identifier:717368
Registration status:Health, Standard 16/01/2020
Indigenous, Final 08/08/2019
Description:

Proportion of regular clients who are Indigenous, have Type II diabetes and whose blood pressure measurement result, recorded within the previous 6 months, was less than or equal to 130/80 mmHg.

Rationale:

The blood pressure target for people with Type II diabetes is less than or equal to 130/80 mmHg. This level is shown to significantly decrease macrovascular (stroke, heart attack and heart failure) and microvascular (kidney disease, eye disease and peripheral neuropathy) complications.

Computation description:

Proportion of regular clients who are Indigenous, have Type II diabetes and whose blood pressure measurement result, recorded within the previous 6 months, was less than or equal to 130/80 mmHg.

‘Regular client’ refers to a client of an Australian Government Department of Health-funded primary health-care service (that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health care key performance indicators) who has an active medical record; that is, a client who has attended the Department of Health-funded primary health-care service at least 3 times in 2 years.

Exclude Type I diabetes, secondary diabetes, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), previous GDM, impaired fasting glucose, impaired glucose tolerance.

The client does not have a blood pressure measurement of less than or equal to 130/80 mmHg if either the systolic or diastolic reading is above the threshold (130 and 80 respectively).

In the general population, blood pressure over 140/90 mmHg is considered high. The blood pressure target for those with Type II diabetes is less than or equal to 130/80 mmHg as it is shown to significantly decrease macrovascular (stroke, heart attack and heart failure) and microvascular (kidney disease, eye disease and peripheral neuropathy) complications.

Presented as a percentage.

If the client has had more than one blood pressure measurement within the previous 6 months, only the most recently recorded result is included in this calculation.

Computation:

(Numerator ÷ Denominator) x 100
