SIGNATURE DIABETES INSTITUTE TO START AUGUST 22nd
New Diabetes Institute to Help Employers in the Greater Philadelphia Region Prevent, Manage, Support and Reduce Diabetes
(Feasterville, PA) – August 20, 2018 – On Wednesday, August 22, 2018, the Signature Diabetes Institute (“SDI”) will formally announce the establishment of the Institute at its Feasterville, PA location, 1234 Bridgetown Road, Feasterville. The Signature Diabetes Institute will bring together the region's dynamic clinical endocrinologists, Alan Schorr, DO and Arvind Cavale, MD along with dietitians Lesley Kelner and Natallia Berila to use best practices of the Signature Diabetes Institute ("SDI") to reduce the human and financial costs of diabetes.
Increasing rapidly, diabetes already costs the metro Philadelphia region more than $6.1 Billion, annually. For an organization covering 1,000 lives, diabetes is annually costing more than $1.1 million dollars. Diabetes is very disruptive to families and employers for appointments, absenteeism and increased hospital visits.
To address the rising costs and impacts of diabetes, organizations contract with SDI to manage the total cost and impacts of diabetes. Through a thorough implementation plan and intake strategy, SDI immediately impacts employee health and organizational costs. In doing so, SDI helps plan sponsors, trustees, directors and board members manage one of their fastest growing expenses. Today, an organization's total cost of diabetes can exceed 15% of total healthcare costs. Between 2012 and 2017, the cost of diabetes grew by 25%, making the total cost $327 Billion in America. *Source: American Diabetes Association
The SDI system develops personalized, cost-effective care plans with employees and their families that reduce the many impacts of diabetes and deliver significant health and financial improvements and savings.
