Disease Prevention ProgramPrediabetes

Reveal barriers you haven’t been able to see before to build deeper, more meaningful relationships.

7.3% of the adult population globally and 33% of the adult population in the United States is estimated to have prediabetes.1,2 Unfortunately, most people with prediabetes don’t know they have the disease.

A Behaviorally Enriched Approach to Prevention

Prevention programs can lower patients’ risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58%.3 Our Prediabetes Program uses Silver Fern’s clinically proven approach and was designed for use by your care management team with your prediabetes population or to enrich your Diabetes Prevention Programs (DPP). The program unlocks behavior and psychosocial insights that enable effective care plans for individuals and targeted population interventions.

Preventing Escalating Costs

25% of patients with prediabetes will progress to type 2 diabetes within 3-5 years and 70% in their lifetimes.2 Silver Fern’s Prediabetes Program helps care management teams effectively assess and address what’s getting in the way of patient success. It unlocks the behaviors, barriers, and goals that are central to preventing or delaying the onset of type 2 diabetes and the associated costs.

Prevent Disease Progression and Escalating Costs by Targeting the Changes that Matter Most


Using Silver Fern’s Prediabetes Program as part of a behaviorally enriched Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), our client changed a hard-to-reach population’s mean HbA1c from 5.6% to 5.2%, a clinically significant reduction. Compared to standard DPP results published by the CDC, our client’s program also resulted in:
Patients achieving weight loss and physical activity goals
Higher patient engagement
(attendance at treatment sessions)

Featured Modules

The Prediabetes Program includes ten research-based modules that address self-management behaviors and psychosocial barriers, including:

Health Literacy & Numeracy

Establishes whether the patient has the base level of health literacy needed to read and understand medication directions, food labels, and other care plans.

Behavioral Health Barriers

Screens for psychological issues such as depression, anxiety, and alcohol dependence that can negatively impact healthy lifestyle behaviors.

SDoH Plus

Assesses social support and social determinants of health that can impact participant engagement and personal care.

All of Silver Fern’s assessment modules meet Medicaid readability guidelines.
This program is transforming how the family unit relates to food, exercise and wellness. The benefits will be transferred to future generations.
