Long-term behavior change delivers greater ROI

Can everyone improve their health? At Omada Health, we believe that with long-term behavior change, the answer is a resounding yes. In the context of organizational health, that possibility has the potential to translate into game-changing ROI with the right tools and support; and it would also go a long way toward solving the chronic disease crisis affecting millions of Americans today. An astonishing 42%1 of Americans struggle with two or more chronic conditions, while 28% suffer from three or more. 

That’s why Cigna collaborated with Omada to offer a digital diabetes prevention program to help prevent type 2 diabetes and lower the risk for heart disease. By combining the latest clinical guidelines with breakthrough behavior science, we are making it possible for whole populations to more easily and cost effectively manage chronic conditions and achieve lasting health changes. The results through two years were astounding.

An analysis of the Cigna Diabetes Prevention Program (focused on parts of 2016 – parts of 2020) found that through year two, the program delivers far greater ROI than through year one alone.3

Average net medical cost savings per participant:

Year 1 Year 2
$348 $989

 

Average percentage of weight lost by participants:

Year 1 Year 2
2.1% 4.1%

 

Average ROI for employers:

Year 1 Year 2
1.7:1 2.7:1

 

Exciting results like these from the Cigna Diabetes Prevention Program with Omada Health continue to validate Omada’s cutting edge approach to health.

It’s why Omada is trusted by over 1,700 customers and 550,000 individual members to deliver personalized care––with integrated behavioral health methodology––for diabetes and diabetes prevention, hypertension, and musculoskeletal issues. Omada Health’s virtual care programs are clinically supported and evidence-based, and our results are published in multiple peer-reviewed journals.
