A fresh new program that helps employers, pharmacists and people with diabetes to work together with the aim of lowering diabetes-related health care costs and improve patient health is being accepted well.
The initiative, known as the Diabetes Ten City Challenge, has been set up by the American Pharmacists Association. The program has been set up with the support of GlaxoSmithKline . Data from almost 600 people with diabetes enrolled in the study shows a reduction in healthcare costs.
Co-author Dr. Bluml reportedly commented: “Ten City Diabetes Challenge provides a promising collaborative care model that blends important elements of a ‘reformed’ health care delivery process by integrating accessibility, patient-centeredness, and value achieved by helping patients to make clinical improvements while managing costs.”
