Why DAPS Health
Diabetes has become a national epidemic. With as much as 52% of the U.S. population either pre-diabetic or diabetic, the nation’s health industry is experiencing the burden of severely spiraling costs. Greater than 40% of all diabetics have neuropathy and are insensate; they have lost the ability to feel pain to protect them from injury. Greater than 50% of all diabetics have peripheral vascular disease with links to heart disease as well as obstruction and gangrene. These clinical conditions are the major cause of diabetic foot wounds leading to multiple hospitalizations, surgeries, and ultimately amputation. 84% of all amputations begin with a diabetic foot ulcer. Our program has been proven to:
- Reduce foot ulcers (wounds) and amputations
- Reduce complications that diabetics fear the most by identifying and remediating other concurrent co-morbidities associated with diabetes including clinical depression; retinopathy; heart disease; chronic kidney disease
- Reduce healthcare costs through early identification and treatment of conditions before they reach the acute/emergent stages
What Separates DAPS Health from Other Population Management Programs?
Amputation is the greatest fear of a person with diabetes and this fear drives diabetic populations into our Prediction and Prevention program.
“Amputation Should Never be the Accepted End Result”
–Dr. Jeffrey Tredwell, Founder DAPS Health
- The DAPS Health program is predictive, rather than reactive.
- The DAPS Health program disrupts the status quo from a benign neglect watchful waiting approach for complications development to prediction and prevention causing a significant and transformational paradigm shift in the way diabetes care is delivered.
- The DAPS Health leadership team is the only group with demonstrated successful clinical and financial disease management outcomes in major diabetic populations
- The DAPS Health clinical services and technology methodology focuses on the entire set of diabetes complications affecting the patient, utilizing a population management paradigm, and its links to other diabetes complications.
- The DAPS Health organized system of care utilizes a complex set of protocols and algorithms developed by its leadership
- The DAPS Health training program for clinical staff includes a unique study in diabetes prediction and prevention protocols and algorithms covering every aspect of a predictive population management approach
