MEDITECH Launches Diabetes Prevention Toolkit in Expanse
MEDITECH's Diabetes Prevention Toolkit — an extension of our Diabetes Management Toolkit — helps care managers identify and monitor prediabetic patients.
According to the CDC, one in three American adults has prediabetes — higher than normal blood glucose levels. It’s treatable if detected early, but most people with prediabetes don’t know they have it.
MEDITECH’s Diabetes Prevention Toolkit — an extension of our Diabetes Management Toolkit — helps organizations to take a proactive approach by identifying and monitoring patients who are either at risk for prediabetes or are already prediabetic. Designed using Expanse, our fully interoperable, web-based platform, the toolkit aligns with recommendations from the CDC and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.
Its evidence-based, ambulatory bundle of tools supports care managers as they assist patients with adopting diet and lifestyle changes that reduce the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes. Using patient registries, these clinicians are able to monitor and assess patients via real-time data — obtained from the patient chart, documented in questionnaires, or shared by the patient via patient-generated health data.
