What is the partnership Solera Health has with the American Diabetes Association to help people with prediabetes find a Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) provider?

Solera’s really excited about our partnership with the American Diabetes Association, and what we recognized is that there was a lot of energy around educating consumers around their risk for type 2 diabetes and there was a program available to them to reduce their risk and improve their health. But, what we also noticed was that there wasn’t an efficient way for people to identify where a high-quality, local community DPP provider was, and whether they were covered by their insurance.

So, the partnership with the American Diabetes Association allows those people who are identified as high-risk for type 2 diabetes through the American Diabetes Association’s screener to be sent over to Solera for us to actually find a program for them that best meets their unique needs and preferences, verify their eligibility, and enroll them in a program so they can get started on improving their health.
