Omada Chronic Disease Prevention Program
Leverage Omada to encourage lasting behavior change
84.1 million Americans have prediabetes, a condition where blood sugar is higher than normal, but not high enough to constitute a type 2 diabetes diagnosis. 15-20 percent of those individuals will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years, leading to increased healthcare spending on diabetes management. However, if caught early through screening, prediabetes is reversible through lifestyle changes. As the nation’s leading provider of workplace screening programs, we are dedicated to preventing diabetes in America’s workforce. That is why we’ve partnered with Omada, a CDC-recognized Diabetes Prevention Program provider.
Our goal is to help organizations offer solutions that address the most costly disease states identified in our laboratory-based screening programs. Our partnership will leverage health screening data to identify individuals with or at risk for chronic conditions, and invite them 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 diabetes.
Moreover, Omada 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 behavior change programs don’t just see a sustained positive impact on their screening results—they also lose weight.1,2
How it works
Organizations can customize the Omada experience for participants by selecting up to 3 program options, with customizable clinical criteria and smart connected devices for each.*
- Disease prevention: Help participants at risk for chronic diseases reverse their health trends with a program that builds lasting strategies for healthy eating, increased activity, stress management, and weight loss.
- Hypertension management: Empower better health for individuals with hypertension by offering a program that focuses on maintaining blood pressure goals and reducing the risk of cardiovascular compilations.
- Diabetes management: Provide individuals with diabetes a path to better health with a program that encourages achievable lifestyle changes to lose or maintain weight and achieve target glucose levels.
The participant experience
- A dedicated health coach: A full-time health coach is there to keep participants on track—on their best days and their worst.
- Information becomes insight: Each week, participants will receive simple guidance for better eating, fitness, sleep, and stress management, which will have an immediate impact on the choices they make.
- Tools to motivate: Omada will mail participants smart technology to track progress, and reveal what is (and isn’t) working.
- Group support is included: Participants can’t do this alone. They’ll gain the support of a small group of peers for encouragement
and empathy at every step.
The Omada advantage
- Activity-based billing: You pay only when and if employees engage.
- Powerful marketing: A proven multi-channel campaign to inspire employees to participate.
- Ongoing reporting: You will be updated on program enrollment, engagement, and success along the way.
- Easy implementation: Quest and Omada will collaborate in a way that ensures effortless implementation and on-time execution.

*Clinical criteria can be set for the prevention, hypertension, and diabetes programs with certain restrictions. If all 3 programs are selected, eligible participants can qualify for the prevention program, or the diabetes program, or the hypertension program, or the diabetes and hypertension program based on clinical criteria set. All hypertension participants will receive a blood pressure monitor, and diabetes participants receive a glucose meter based on clinical best practices.
