Opportunity for Real-Time, Longitudinal Clinical Laboratory Data to Enhance Diabetes Disease Surveillance:

A Cross-Sectional, Laboratory Database–Enabled Population Study

They used the Rhodes Repository Engine to identify the number of diabetics in New Mexico and compared it against the CDC’s methodology of estimating the number of diabetics.
