Data are predicted probabilities (95% CI). Referent group is male physicians.

*

Unweighted sum of the seven process measures; parentheses indicate P value.

Parentheses indicate P value.

Adjusted for provider age and specialty and patient age, race, gender, education, income, diabetes treatment and duration, health status, and clustering within provider groups.
