The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) publishes a Final Evidence report entitled, “Diabetes Prevention Programs: Effectiveness and Value.” ICER assessed 10 U.S. National DPP lifestyle change programs with full or pending recognition from the CDC’s Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program. The report concluded that the CDC-recognized programs provided “an incremental or better” net health benefit, and digital programs with fully automated (not human) coaching provided “comparable or better” net health benefit versus standard care.
