National DPP Demonstration Project Case Studies

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.

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

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

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.

M.A.P. (Measure, Act, Partner)

Physicians and care teams can use this document to determine roles and responsibilities for identifying adult patients with prediabetes and referring to community-based diabetes prevention programs.

Prevalence and Correlates of Diabetes Prevention Program Referral and Participation

The American Journal of Preventive Medicine published a study (Venkataramani, 2018) recently examining rates of referral to diabetes prevention programs. The study showed that rates of clinical referral were low and participation even lower, in spite of the fact that more than a quarter of adults were likely eligible for the prevention program expressed interest in participating. This underscores the need to enhance physician referral and patient access and participation in diabetes prevention programs.
