The American Medical Association (AMA) convened a cross-specialty, multidisciplinary technical expert panel (TEP) to identify and define new quality measures for prediabetes. The draft measures proposed by this TEP represent the first measures in the U.S. intended to assist in the prevention of type 2 diabetes. The proposed measures address screening for prediabetes, providing intervention for those with prediabetes, and follow-up testing for those with prediabetes.

 

Currently, eighty-four million Americans have prediabetes and 9 out 10 of these individuals are unaware that they have this condition. CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs are included in the health benefit plans of many private health insurers and the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program will extend the program to Medicare beneficiaries in April 2018.

 

The 30-day comment period begins TODAY, Tuesday, May 1st and will close at 11:59 p.m. Central on Thursday, May 31st. All comments are welcome and will be compiled to be shared with the TEP for consideration.
