Intermountain, Omada partner on virtual diabetes care

Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare's value-based care subsidiary, Castell, has partnered with virtual chronic care provider Omada Health to offer virtual diabetes care and prevention to patients. 

The two will work to identify patients for Omada Health's virtual diabetes prevention program that offers members support along with intervention from health coaches certified through the CDC-affiliated Diabetes Training and Technical Assistance Center, according to a Jan. 9 press release from Omada.  

Patients who receive primary care within Intermountain's medical group will be contacted by Castell care coordinators if they're eligible for the program.

Patients enrolled in the program also receive preconnected cellular scales, continuous glucose monitors and blood glucose meters that allow primary care physicians to track patient data in real time. 

Omada will be in charge of tracking clinical metrics, such as the reduction of A1C levels, as part of the program.   

The partnership aims to establish a synergy between virtual and in-person care opportunities for patients.
