With great enthusiasm we want to notify that we have achieved the Preliminary Recognition of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), by the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP), better known as En Cuerpo Sano!
This recognition is part of a two-year evaluation process where the company must comply with a plan and show results that demonstrate interest, commitment, competencies and ability to impact people who have been identified while meeting the requirements of a formal educational program in in the prevention of type 2 diabetes.
This recognition ranks TeleMedik among the most prestigious organizations in the field of health and open to endless opportunities. This program, internally named En Cuerpo Sano, strengthens the fight against type 2 diabetes and while having an impact in the quality of life of the general population. Studies in the United States have shown that this program can reduce the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 58% in adults, and 71% in people 60 years of age or older.
During the past 2 years, in TeleMedik we have had more than 70 participants in this program, where a series of lectures and educational interventions are offered by professionals that contribute to their lifestyle change. In the past few months, the Atlanta CDC evaluated the results of our participants in this phase of certification and has positively awarded the Preliminary Recognition category. This achievement advances our effort to become a CMS (Medicare Service Centers) provider and to offer potential clients this required program within the highest standards of service and education.
There is still a way to go to obtain the Complete Recognition from the CDC. The criteria of participation and attendance, level of satisfaction, retention of participants, documentation, impact on clinical indicators of the participant; are just some of the goals and guides observed. Therefore, the active group, currently with more than 30 members, has in its hands the granting of this final recognition for the month of May 2020. We have already observed success stories with some of our employees that fill us with pride.
We wish to congratulate our fellow program participants and a special thanks to managers and supervisors for their commitment and constant collaboration. We highlight the work of: Celimar Collado, Roxanna Tosca, Idalis Mercado, Dr. Joaquín Fernández, our marketing team Paola Díaz, Jimmary Guzmán and all those who have collaborated or participated in it.
We are counting on you to achieve maximum recognition from the CDC and continue to monitor your health progress.
We continue to innovate to make health always available at your fingertips!
