The Diabetes Prevention Impact Toolkit
To help employers, insurers, and state health departments weigh the costs and benefits of offering National DPP lifestyle change programs, CDC has developed the Diabetes Prevention Impact Toolkit.
This online tool provides estimates of a) the total cost of delivering a National DPP lifestyle change program to an employer’s, insurer’s, or state’s population; b) total health benefit resulting from the program; c) life years gained and quality-adjusted life years saved; d) cost-effectiveness of the lifestyle change program; and e) return on investment, if applicable.
Users can get results based on default values for their target population or enter customized values that reflect their own population and program experience. Users can also customize the toolkit’s results to show the most relevant data for their needs. Learn more…
