The American Medical Association (AMA), Omada Health, and Intermountain Healthcare today announced an innovative initiative aimed at reducing the alarming number of adults who develop type 2 diabetes. The new collaboration will create a roadmap for large health care organizations across the country to adopt proven online behavior change interventions for at-risk patients, and integrate those programs into provider referral and clinical workflow.
"We're delighted to be partnering with the country's premier physician organization and one of the most innovative health systems in the United States," said Omada Health CEO Sean Duffy. "Intermountain's integration of the Omada program, and AMA's focus on ensuring digital tools work to empower providers will give patients with prediabetes another proven option to meet their care needs. It will also give physicians and their care teams additional treatment options, and actionable data to better understand how to deliver lasting lifestyle change for those in need of it."
