Diabetes Prevention

Diabetes remains one of Mississippis fastest-growing and most costly diseases. Mississippi has the third highest rate of diabetes at 13.6% in the country. According to the CDC, 30.3 million Americans have diabetes and another 84 million have prediabetes. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, costing $245 billion in medical expenses and lost productivity annually. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 1 out of 3 U.S. adultsor nearly 84 millionhave prediabetes, and of those, 90 percent dont know they have it. Fortunately, prediabetes can be reversed, and the sooner patients find out they have prediabetes, the better their chances of preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes. The National Diabetes Prevention Program is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-recognized evidence-based lifestyle change program for persons with prediabetes that has been demonstrated to prevent or delay the development of diabetes. The Mississippi State Medical Association (MSMA) has partnered with the American Medical Association (AMA), with guidance and support from the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), to raise awareness of prediabetes resources, help providers connect their patients to CDC-recognized Diabetes Prevention Programs, and allow patients to take charge of their health. AMA and the CDC have created Prevent Diabetes STAT (Screen / Test / Act Today) , a toolkit to help health care providers identify, engage and test patients at risk for prediabetes and refer patients with prediabetes to CDC Recognized Diabetes Prevention Programs. CDC-recognized diabetes prevention lifestyle change programs connect patients who are at risk for Type 2 diabetes with trained lifestyle coaches and g Continue reading >>

Diabetes Prevention Programs Avert, Delay Disease Onset

Diabetes Prevention Programs Avert, Delay Disease Onset

Diabetes prevention programs avert, delay disease onset Diabetes is a devastating disease. In addition to the long-lasting health effects, such as blindness and cardiovascular disease, the total economic cost of diabetes is a whopping $ 245 billion a year , accounting for one out of every 10 American healthcare dollars spent, according to a 2013 study in Diabetes Care. These costs, driven by the mushrooming prevalence of type 2 diabetes, prompted the CDC to expand the evidence-based National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) to reach a large population. The program targets the estimated 86 million Americansone in every three adultswith prediabetes, up to 30% of whom will develop diabetes within five years without intervention. Engaging people with prediabetes to modify their behavior is challenging, but the National DPP demonstrates that efficient, effective programs can change the lives of people at risk. What are National Diabetes Prevention Programs (National DPPs)? National DPPs are programs that are recognized by CDC. They implement the intensive lifestyle change program that features a trained coach leading a group of people with prediabetes who meet regularly in person, online, or via telehealth during a 12-month period. While the lifestyle coach facilitates the CDC-approved curriculum and provides resources to help people set goals and overcome barriers, the vital ingredient is the camaraderie the meetings foster in a support-group environment. Participants who attend the program reduce their risk of development, or delay type 2 diabetes significantly. In 2012, six organizations were chosen to work in a cooperative agreement with the CDC to expand the National DPP using various models, with a goal of sustainability. The NIH randomized DPP studies found people w Continue reading >>

The National Dpp Coverage Toolkit: Timely Tools For Payers Addressing Prediabetes

The National Dpp Coverage Toolkit: Timely Tools For Payers Addressing Prediabetes

The National DPP Coverage Toolkit: Timely Tools for Payers Addressing Prediabetes More than 86 million American adults have prediabetes. That number alone is astounding, but perhaps what is even more concerning is that 9 out of 10 people with prediabetes dont know they have it. Considering that, in the absence of any health intervention, 1530 percent of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within five years, effective preventive measures are needed to mitigate a serious public health crisis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is proactively responding to this potential problem by developing and promoting the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) lifestyle change program. The National DPP Lifestyle Change Program The National DPP lifestyle change program is an evidence-based program that can be provided through an in-person classroom-like setting, a virtual platform, or a combined approach. To receive reimbursement, the site facilitating the program must obtain CDC recognition. A few states currently cover the program for Medicaid beneficiaries, several states cover the program for state employees, and many employers cover the program as an employee benefit. Medicare coverage of the program will become effective in 2018. As interest in covering the National DPP lifestyle change program has grown, so has the need for a tool that can help organizations navigate the potential complexities of covering the program. The result is the National DPP Coverage Toolkit. The National DPP Coverage Toolkit is a web-based resource developed in partnership by the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), Leavitt Partners, and the CDC. The online toolkit provides specific resources and information on important topics for pa Continue reading >>

National Dpp Research And Return On Investment - American College Of Preventive Medicine

National DPP Research and Return on Investment About the Program Research / ROI Patient Materials Referral Strategies Provider Reimbursement Events / Webinars CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs are proven to work and are based on research led by the National Institutes of Health. This research showed that people with prediabetes who take part in a structured lifestyle change program can cut their risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent (71 percentfor people over 60 years old). This finding was the result of the program helping people lose 5 to 7 percentof their body weight through healthier eating and 150 minutes of physical activity a week. For a person who weighs 200 pounds, losing 5 to 7 percentof their body weight means losing just 10 to 14 pounds. It doesnt take a drastic weight loss to make a big impact. And the impact of this program can last for years to come. Research has found that even after 10 years, people who completed a diabetes prevention lifestyle change program were one third less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. (Source: CDC-DPP ) The Diabetes Prevention Impact toolkit predicts the health and economic effects of the National DPP lifestyle change program on a state, employer, or insurers population at risk for type 2 diabetes. Specifically, the toolkit allows users to estimate program costs, diabetes-related medical costs, and return on investment (ROI) along with other cost and health outcome measures. In the Employer and Insurer modules, users have the option to customize their results by entering employee/beneficiary-specific data. This toolkit was developed to provide information for payers interested in covering the National DPP lifestyle change program. Continue reading >>
