The Diabetes Money Pit at HLTH

Published on September 29, 2023  |  By: RubiconMD

Did you know that $1 out of every $4 spent on healthcare is a diabetes cost? Developing new ways to prevent, diagnose, and effectively manage diabetes is imperative for reducing healthcare expenditure.

On October 8th at 2 p.m., RubiconMD CMO Laolu Fayajnu, MD, MSc will be a panelist for a session at the 2023 HLTH conference in Las Vegas to explore this topic. As a primary care clinician on the front lines of diabetes care, Dr. Fayajnu will be focused on how primary care can utilize proactive, programmatic, and efficient workflows for diabetes management. He will explore how access to virtual endocrinologists and clinical pharmacists helps to effectively manage diabetic patients in the primary setting. He will discuss how these strategies are particularly impactful for underserved, and access-challenged patients.

The other members of this panel are Gary Rothenberg, DPM, CDCES, CWS, Head of Medical Affairs at Podimetrics, Jared Watkin, Senior Vice President, Diabetes Care at Abbott, and Sanjula Jain, Ph.D., Chief Research Officer and SVP of Market Strategy at Trilliant Health. This group will be discussing the challenges with preventative care, the hidden costs of diabetes, the impact of GLP-1s, and the role that tech can play in tackling this healthcare challenge.

If you are attending HLTH, be sure to join this session as the conversation is gearing up to be highly engaging on this critical, timely topic.
