Adherence tools for diabetes patients
Know more sooner—help your diabetes patients stay ahead
Patient adherence and compliance are critical, no matter what the condition. But for diabetes in particular, the impact can be significant because patients play such a large role in the management of their disease. Improved adherence is associated with greater glycemic control, decreased hospitalization, and decreased utilization of healthcare services.1 Fortunately, educating patients about diabetes management and providing them with tools to manage it can make a real impact.2
We offer an array of simple and effective tools to help your patients stay organized and motivated so they can keep up with the many demands of diabetes. Whether it’s making and remembering doctors’ appointments, staying on top of their medication, or getting routine tests done on time, Quest Diagnostics has tools that will help:
- MyQuest™ mobile app—a convenient way for patients to view, access, and securely share health information, as well as monitor weight and body mass wirelessly. This is a great way to help ensure patients get testing done on time—something now considered a priority for our healthcare system
- TestMinder®—helps patients schedule and remember testing via email, text, or phone
- Patient education materials—print and online pieces explain the importance of testing and adherence to treatment plans
Let us help you know what’s ahead
