Descriptive analysis of the application data was performed. For moderate measurements over time, select an evolution through mixed model adjustments. To verify the impact of careless deployment, were compared data from two audits performed pre- and post-deployment.

And 1,875 patients with cholesterol measurements, being 1,618 with one measurement and 257 with two measurements after the software implementation. The HbA1c control in diabetics before implementation was 62.3% and after implementation 66% (p = 0.306).
