Quest Diagnostics Partners with U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to Improve Hepatitis C Public Health Research

Quest Diagnostics announced a collaboration with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to improve public health analysis of hepatitis C screening, diagnosis and treatment, based on analysis of the company's national hepatitis C virus diagnostic information. The collaboration aims to enhance screening, diagnosis and medical intervention for the approximately 3.2 million Americans infected with hepatitis C, promoting favorable health outcomes. The organizations will primarily focus on individuals born during 1945 through 1965. Individuals in this ‘baby boomer’ generation are five times more likely than other adults to be infected, and one-time testing, as recommended by the CDC in 2012, could prevent more than 120,000 deaths in this age group. Under an agreement, medical experts, scientists and health informatics experts from Quest Diagnostics and the CDC's Division of Viral Hepatitis will share access to de-identified hepatitis C test results, in a HIPAA compliant manner, from the Quest Diagnostics Health Trends(TM) national clinical laboratory database, which represents every state and the District of Columbia. The de-identified data, with names and personally identifying information removed, will include results of screening and confirmatory diagnostic tests as well as genotyping and viral load tests used by clinicians to manage treatment.

U.S. Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (cdc) Awards Grant to Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance to Expand National Program to Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

U.S. Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (cdc) awarded UnitedHealth Group's Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance (DPCA) a grant to expand the reach of the DPCA's Diabetes Prevention Program.

The DPCA will expand the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program in Colorado, Tennessee and Washington. The National Diabetes Prevention Program is an innovative lifestyle coaching program. It is conducted in a group setting through community organizations that helps people with prediabetes and who are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes make healthy lifestyle changes and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by nearly 60%. These changes include healthy eating, increased physical activity and other lifestyle choices. The program is modeled after the Diabetes Prevention Program, a research study led by the National Institutes of Health and supported by the CDC.
