Diabetes Preventable (PQI) Inpatient Visit Rates by Race/Ethnicity

New York Finger Lakes Region

There is a large racial/ethnic disparity in the rate of preventable inpatient (PQI) visits due to diabetes. The African-American rate (497) was over four times the white rate (118) in 2016. The Latino rate (339) is nearly three times the white rate. And unfortunately, the disparity has grown over the last 15 years. Compared to 2000, the African-American and Latino PQI rates have risen, while the white rate has remained flat.
