Disease ProgramType 2 Diabetes

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


The ADA regards Type 2 diabetes as one of the most challenging conditions in the United States and globally.

Silver Fern’s Type 2 Diabetes Program contains 18 modules that were specifically designed to help clinical teams meet the ADA’s landmark Clinical Practice Guidelines: Psychosocial Care for People Living with Diabetes and allows for the practical implementation of those guidelines at scale in order to reach the 30 million+ patients living with diabetes across the United States and the more than 422 million people with diabetes globally.^

18 Research-Based Modules

in the Type 2 Diabetes Program address self-management behaviors and psychosocial barriers, including these featured modules:




Monitoring Blood Sugars

Gathers important but frequently overlooked information about patient behaviors, attitudes, goals, and barriers related to blood glucose monitoring.

Diabetes Emotional Distress

Assesses emotional burnout from diabetes treatment and the potential complications that may arise as a result, including treatment disengagement and depression.

Insulin Therapy Problems

Assesses a range of important clinical issues related to insulin therapy that impact patient quality of life, medical outcomes, and patient safety.
I recommend the Behavioral Diagnostic Platform for any health system, health plan or disease management program hoping to improve diabetes outcomes by addressing individual patient barriers to care.

I have been a nurse for over 40 years, and I’ve used many different platforms, and all of them are focused on finding out about a member or participant’s health, for instance, their diabetes. Silver Fern focuses on the person with diabetes. It focuses on how they react to their diabetes, how they live with it, how they manage it, and how it affects them in their day-to-day life. Because that’s really what helps them either manage or not manage.
