Alicare Medical Management Honored with Case in Point Platinum Award for Diabetic Management Program
Date:5/14/2013

White Plains, NY (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Alicare Medical Management (AMM) received the prestigious Case in Point Platinum Award for its diabetic management program during Dorland Health’s 5th Annual Care Coordination Summit in Washington, DC. Case in Point Platinum Awards recognize professionals and organizations making significant headway to address the challenges impacting the U.S. health care system.

“We are proud to join the ranks of the distinguished and innovative companies nominated for the Platinum Award,” says Claire Levitt, MS, AMM president. “This award represents the commitment and dedication of Alicare Medical Management to helping solve medical management challenges in health care – in this case, diabetes, one of the most prevalent and chronic conditions that affects the health of our nation.”

As part of its “Getting Well, Staying Well” initiative, AMM developed and implemented the diabetic management program in conjunction with a trust fund client that covered a population suffering from a high rate of diabetes. The program allows the waiving of co-pays for diabetes medication as long as the patient sets and achieves goals with the case manager. Thanks to strong incentives, the client achieved a 60 percent enrollment rate of identified diabetics within the first year of the program and saw a 95 percent retention rate. As a result, 100 percent of enrolled clients met blood glucose monitoring compliance.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), diabetes impacts 25.8 million people, more than 8 percent of the entire U.S. population, and is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. It is a major contributor to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, limb amputations and blindness. The CDC estimates medical expenses for diabetics to be 2.3 times higher than medical expenses for those without the disease, and costs our nation $116 billion in direct medical expenses a year.

“Together we can work to manage this disease more efficiently and cost effectively, while educating Americans about the importance of a healthy lifestyle to prevent the onset of diabetes,” Levitt concludes.
