Preventing chronic disease in the risking-risk population: Three strategies for ACOs before, during, and after the patient engages in the clinical care setting

The AMA and Leavitt Partners authored this perspective paper, “Preventing Chronic Disease in the Rising-Risk Population: Three Strategies for ACOs Before, During, and After the Patient Engages in the Clinical Care Setting,” to outline strategies for health care organizations working within an alternative payment model to target the rising-risk population.

These recommendations include:
1. Identifying the rising-risk index of patients.
2. Rethinking care strategies to address non-clinical factors that affect clinical outcomes, such as social determinants of health.
3. Connect rising-risk patients to behavioral and lifestyle change support groups.

Changes in the National Diabetes Prevention Program present opportunities for registered dietitian nutritionists to reduce the prevalence of diabetes

There is good evidence that individualized Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) provided by a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) is successful in deterring the progression of prediabetes to type 2 diabetes. Because most health coaches in trials supporting the National DPP were dietitians, many DPPs currently employ RDNs to deliver the diabetes prevention curriculum and monitor participants' progress.  Dietitians who provided individualized MNT in these trials demonstrate the use of the extended care team in partnering with patients to prevent type 2 diabetes.
