Study goal: To extend the role of the community pharmacist by improving clinical markers that align with the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program (MDPP) expanded model and Medication Therapy Management elements. The current study population will be comprised of patients with type 2 diabetes in lieu of prediabetes as a Gateway Project seen in an independent community pharmacy setting and include a medication adherence component that maps to reimbursable medication therapy management efforts, along with the weight reduction and behavioral visits tied to the new Medicare MDPP reimbursement schedule.
- To assess the impact of intensive pharmacist coaching on adherence for diabetes medications as measured by a digital health tool i.e., PillDrill, total measure is triangulated adherence score anchored by hemoglobin A1c at 6 months.
- To achieve weight loss goals of 5% from baseline, measure is recorded weight, which would trigger initial performance payment in proposed MDPP fee structure in conjunction with visits.
- To record and explore role of mood and sleep on program progressions as logged by mood cube and sleep tracking.liol
