Multi-modal approach helps members achieve optimal outcomes
The Live Vibrantly Diabetes Management program gives patients access to specialized Medication Therapy Management pharmacists and wellness coaches that are certified in motivational interviewing and trained to promote patient empowerment and independence. This widespread and educational program provides patients with diabetes a comprehensive management plan that is designed to effectively address key improvement opportunities across the continuum of care.
“Diabetes is a chronic disease with devastating health effects and our program helps patients navigate the challenges and improve their healthcare journey,” said
According to the American Diabetes Associations, 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year and with the rise of medications and treatment options, patients and practitioners may have difficulty navigating the many available options. The Live Vibrantly Diabetes Management program has shown clinically-driven results and cost savings among multiple clients across various lines of business. Successful results include:
- More than 90 percent of intervened members achieved their medication adherence goals.
- Statin utilization more than doubled, a key factor in decreasing cardiac events in those with diabetes.
- An average reduction of one percent in A1c, and the number of members reaching their A1c goals more than doubled, demonstrating significant long-term improvement.
- The total diabetic cost of care spend decreased by 17 percent in intervened members due to a decrease in inpatient hospitalizations and emergency room visits related to diabetes.
“By collaboratively working with providers, treating the patient holistically and monitoring all aspects of healthcare impacted by diabetes, we are able to help those living with diabetes lead a healthier, more vibrant life,” said Makanji.
