In this video, Robert Gabbay, MD, PhD, speaks about the large toll the cost of diabetes management takes on society, including long-term complications, such as amputations, kidney failure, heart disease, and blindness. Many of these complications can be prevented by effective glucose, cholesterol, and blood pressure control. In addition, effective patient behaviors, such as medication adherence and weight loss/exercise, can help improve outcomes.
He also addresses how economic incentives, such as value-based insurance design, can help promote effective patient behaviors to improve outcomes. Improving outcomes and preventing long-term complications, says Dr. Gabbay, can have a tremendous impact on lowering costs.
