Omada Health Announces Investment From The California Health Care Foundation And The Kresge Foundation To Deliver Online Diabetes Prevention Programs To Low-income Patients - Yahoo Finance
The funding will be used to offer Prevent to low-income patients sourced from Omada partners including health plans, clinics, and other care settings. This effort will also include development of a Spanish-language adaptation of Prevent. CHCF and The Kresge Foundation will also fund and publish an independent evaluation of the efficacy of Prevent in low-income populations based on data collected during the pilot. “CHCF chose to invest in Omada Health because the Prevent program has the potential to make diabetes prevention more engaging, affordable, and effective for patients, leading to better outcomes and lower health system costs,” said Margaret Laws, director of the CHCF Innovations for the Underserved program, which manages the CHCF Health Innovation Fund. As part of our mission to expand opportunity for low-income people, we invest in efforts to address health disparities, said Kresges Kimberlee Cornett, managing director of the foundations social investment practice. Kresges emphasis is on promoting good health, and Omada has developed a promising approach. Prevent is an online diabetes prevention program (DPP) based on guidelines published by the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP), a public-private initiative led by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC). The Prevent program, which has already been adopted by a variety of employers and health plans, has published outcomes in the leading medical journal The Diabetes Educator and is credited for helping patients lose weight and make the sort of lifestyle changes shown to help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
