OmniSYS Expands Diabetic Self-Management Training Billing Service to All 50 States
OmniSYS’ DSMT product solution assists pharmacies in further expanding their role to serve the healthcare needs of diabetic patients. By providing preventative training, pharmacies are able to decrease healthcare costs for Medicare patients and improve their healthcare outcomes. To participate, a pharmacy’s DSMT program must be accredited by American Diabetes Association (ADA), the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) or Indian Health Services (IHS). “OmniSYS is excited to expand DSMT services as this service directly aligns with our strategy to develop effective healthcare solutions enabling our clients to achieve stronger patient medication adherence results,” said Tricia Fringer, OmniSYS’ President-CEO.
In a position statement, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) has noted that multiple studies have found that Diabetes Self-Management Education “is associated with improved diabetes knowledge and improved self-care behavior, improved clinical outcomes such as lower A1C, lower self-reported weight, improved quality of life, healthy coping, and lower costs.” The ADA also cited studies finding that “diabetes education is associated with increased use of primary and preventive services and lower use of acute, inpatient hospital services. Patients who participate in diabetes education are more likely to follow best practice treatment recommendations, particularly among the Medicare population, and have lower Medicare and commercial claim costs.” Other studies provide similar support in terms of DSMT associated cost savings and DSMT associated positive diabetes health outcomes.
