National DPP Demonstration Project Case Studies

Increasing Physician  Screening, Testing, and Referral of Patients with Prediabetes to the National Diabetes Prevention Program Lifestyle Change Program

ACPM has funded 9 health care organizations/practices to develop and implement a protocol for screening, testing, and referring patients with prediabetes to a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program, either through the EHR or by using another non-electronic approach.

Year 1 Case Study

This case study documents the experiences of  Year 1 grantees Altamed Health Services, Wheat Ridge Internal Medicine, and Emory Healthcare System. The case study discusses the approaches, barriers, and the scalability plans of each organization. This information will be helpful to other healthcare organizations / practices interested in developing and implementing prediabetes screening, testing, and referral models a road map to applying the elements of the diabetes prevention identification and referral guide.


Year 2 Case Study (Coming December 2018)

This case study documents the experiences of Year 2 grantees Northeast Missouri Health Center, Accent on Health, and Griffin Faculty Associates. The case study reviews the approaches, barriers, and scalability plans of three of these health care organizations. The three organizations from year 2 of the demonstration projects were chosen because of their innovative approaches to increasing awareness of prediabetes, implementing screening and referral workflows, and  the associated lessons learned that will be applicable to diverse settings




The development of these resources were supported by a five-year cooperative agreement (# 6 NU38OT000130-05-01) from the CDC Office of State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support (OSTLTS).
