Activate has partnered with Northwind Pharmacy to provide a diabetes management program. Eligible patients will receive a letter in the mail inviting them to the program. If the patient signs the Commitment Agreement, the patient will engage with a coach, attend monthly interaction meetings, and all medications and supplies will be provided for FREE. The diabetes care kit will include oral diabetes medication, insulin, syringes, glucose meters and test strips, continuous glucose monitors (CGMs), lancets, alcohol swabs, sharps container, insulin pump & supplies, blood pressure monitor, and diabetes information and additional resources.
If a patient enrolls in the partnership with Northwind Diabetes, the engagement complements the patient’s care program; the patient will maintain their primary care provider/Endocrinologist. In fact, a notification letter to the patient’s provider will be sent outlining the program and partnership.
After enrollment into the program, the patient will schedule their first appointment and the diabetes care kit will be ordered. At the first appointment, the patient will receive their kit with an overview of the program, set expectations, and engage with a coach and consult with a dietician. During the monthly patient interaction, their will be a review of the patient’s blood sugar trends, lifestyle coaching will be provided, and additional program compliance coaching. The patient’s primary care provider will also be given a progress report and any insights.
Activate is thrilled with the Northwind Pharmacy partnership to provide quality care and outcomes for our patients with diabetes. For more information, contact either Activate Health Care locations; Davenport, IA at (563) 214-1599 or Rockford, IL at (779) 368-0757.
