Diabetes Ten City Challenge Collaborative Model Shows Improved Patient Health Across Key Clinical Indicators
Date:3/12/2008

Toni Fera, PharmD, principal author of an article on the results appearing in the March/April issue of the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association. "These results are consistent with data from past projects where similar clinical improvements translated to annual savings to employers in total direct medical costs for participants."

"Chronic diseases like diabetes are threatening the stability of our healthcare system," said GlaxoSmithKline President of U.S. Pharmaceuticals, Chris Viehbacher. "By focusing on patients and helping them to better understand and self-manage their condition, we can improve their health and lower costs. GSK is proud to support the Diabetes Ten City Challenge because it is a model that works and can be replicated."

How the DTCC Model Works

The APhA Foundation contracts with employers, helps establish local pharmacist networks and provides software and data analysis for the DTCC. Employers offer the voluntary employee benefit and compensate pharmacists for the care provided. Participating pharmacists, who are specially trained in diabetes care, educate participants on diabetes, diet and nutrition. These "pharmacist coaches" meet with participants regularly to help them track key diabetes indicators and manage their diabetes by eating right, exercising regularly, visiting their doctors and taking medications as prescribed.

Physicians are informed of participants' enrollment and are encouraged to share individual patient care plans with the pharmacist, who reinforces those plans in personal meetings. Pharmacists communicate with physicians after every visit and refer patients to other health care providers as needed for additional care or education.

Expanding the DTCC Model for all Chronic Diseases

An additional 50 employers and 1,300 employees are using the DTCC model through the APhA Foundation's HealthMapRx(TM) to manage many chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. '/>"/>
