Encourage lasting behavior change
Quest Diagnostics is expanding the partnership with Omada Health® in 2020 to offer health improvement programs to qualified participants. Our goal is to help organizations offer solutions that address the most costly disease states identified in our laboratory-based screening programs. Our partnership helps your organization leverage health screening data to identify individuals with or at risk for chronic conditions and invite those individuals to participate in behavior change programs to manage disease states and mitigate health risks.
Omada is based on proven science
The Omada programs were designed to enhance the intensive behavioral counseling program used in the National Institutes of Health Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) clinical trial, which showed that people with prediabetes who lost a modest amount of weight through lifestyle intervention sharply reduced their chances of developing diabetes. Additionally, research shows that applying these same core principles of behavior change can also reduce risk factors for heart disease, as well as help manage chronic hypertension and type 2 diabetes.1
Omada Health has demonstrated ability to deliver lasting, meaningful results through their programs, with published 1- and 2-year outcomes in peer-reviewed journals. In fact, these studies show that participants in Omada Health behavior change programs don’t just see a sustained positive impact on their screening results—they also lose weight.2,3
Focus on the right risk factors to improve health outcomes
Organizations can customize the Omada Health experience for employees by selecting up to 3 program options, with customizable clinical criteria and connected smart devices for each.*
For more information about adding Omada Health to your employer population health program, contact us.
*Clinical criteria can be set for the prevention, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes programs with certain restrictions. If all 3 programs are selected, eligible participants can qualify for the prevention program, or the type 2 diabetes program, or the hypertension program, or the type 2 diabetes and hypertension program based on clinical criteria set. All hypertension participants will receive a blood pressure monitor and select type 2 diabetes participants receive a glucose meter based on clinical best practices. Organizations can opt out of offering devices if preferred.
