Diabetes screening for people with schizophrenia or bipolar disease who are using antipsychotic medication.

1) Identification of patients – Evidence of regular identification of patients with schizophrenia or bipolar disease who are using antipsychotic medication and who should receive diabetes screening (e.g., report from the electronic health record [EHR], flag or note in the EHR or medical chart, registry, other population health management tracking report); AND
