This case study describes how we are translating a diabetes care quality improvement initiative from an insured (HMO) setting into federally qualified health centers (FQHCs). We outline the innovative collaborative processes whereby researchers and FQHC providers adapted this initiative, which includes health information technology tools, to meet the FQHCs' needs.
