For many employers, diabetes is one of their top medical expenditures and contributes to lost productivity and an increase in absenteeism. Where does prediabetes fit into this cost equation? While not as costly, prediabetes can have a meaningful impact on medical spend and remains significantly under-identified. Nine out of ten individuals with prediabetes are unaware of their condition. Most individuals with prediabetes have had no prior history and will not be identified through traditional testing. Find out how Interactive Health is addressing this gap in prediabetes risk identification among employees and translating it into meaningful health care dollars for employees and employers alike.
What You Will Learn:
- Gaps in prediabetes risk identification in worksite settings when using traditional approaches
- How to identify and track the true number of individuals in your employee population who are at risk for prediabetes
