AADE DPP Expanding Diabetes Prevention Services

Jan 25, 2017

AADE has been working with CDC since 2012 to develop and scale the AADE DPP model of delivering the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) within accredited/recognized DSME programs. This model has proven quite successful. Therefore in 2017, we will offer the following opportunities for DSME programs and diabetes educators to become more involved in the prevention space to support programs as they become recognized and reimbursable DPP providers.

Workshops and training offerings throughout 2017

  • Building Your Diabetes Education and Prevention Fundamentals Workshop: This workshop will help you understand the essential elements required for a comprehensive DSME and CDC Recognized Diabetes Prevention Program.
  • Reimbursement Boot Camp: This session will be geared towards policies and procedures, coverage, billable services, marketing to payers, and recruitment of participants that have DSME/DPP as a covered benefit- both employer, private insurers and public payers (Medicare and Medicaid).
  • AADE DPP Lifestyle Coach Training: As a CDC-approved Training Entity, AADE offers a Lifestyle Coach Training to provide attendees with the knowledge, skills and ability to deliver the PreventT2 curriculum- the approved CDC curriculum for the National DPP.

Opportunity for additional and ongoing support for DPP programs

The AADE DPP Network is coming spring 2017! We are offering qualifying programs the opportunity to apply to be part of our “AADE DPP Network,” which will give you access to tools and resources, marketing templates, educational opportunities, and payer opportunities. We will also give organizations the option to access a web-based performance database platform specifically for DPP data entry, providing real-time analytics and CDC Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program reports, as well as access to specific coverage information and guidance. All tools and materials are developed to provide programs with the necessary components to maintain a successful CDC-recognized program.

Look for more information and pricing to come in spring of 2017.
