 "Standard of Care, Now Available Everywhere” Digital Therapeutics and the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP)

April 23, 2015 @ 3:00 pm ET       Slides will be posted as soon as available

For over a decade, the CDC’s Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) has been the only evidence-­based, standard-­of-­care for individuals with pre-diabetes, a condition which affects roughly 1/3 of Americans and progresses to Type 2 diabetes at a rate of 5-­10% per year.

The program has proven weight loss, blood sugar control, and diabetes risk-­‐reduction results for those patients who attend in-­person classes. However, a majority of individuals with pre-diabetes are unable, or unwilling, to attend in-­person classes.

To address this problem, a new generation of health care providers has emerged with a focus on delivering DPP to patients remotely in order to increase convenience, relevance, accessibility, and outcomes. Omada Health is a leading virtual DPP provider, whose peer-­reviewed, published outcomes validate their ‘Digital Therapeutics' approach.

This webinar will describe how a Digital Therapeutics approach to DPP (whether in combination with a traditional in-­person option, or by itself) can help you bring the proven benefits of the DPP to a much broader array of patients-­in-­need than ever before. Register Now!

 Target audience: NACDD members, benefits leaders for state and local government employee organizations (health plan administration), medical directors in Medicaid state organizations and managed Medicaid plans, medical and accounts professionals at commercial health plans. Please share this invitation with any of your colleagues that might be interested.
