*

Excludes participants without baseline chart data (3,107) or missing exposures (3,107 missing all exposures, plus 87 additional participants missing only influenza vaccination).

Sums of care processes from a 0- to 7-point scale (see text for details).

Participants with missing LDL cholesterol values because of triglyceride values >400 mg/dl were removed from the denominator.

§

Likert-style rating system: 1 = ′poor;′ 2 = ′fair;′ 3 = ′good;′ 4 = ′very good;′ 5 = ′excellent.′ DBP, diastolic blood pressure.
