Walmart Health Rolls Out Telehealth Diabetes Program
The program is designed to assist employers and payors in helping their employees and members close gaps in diabetes management via early intervention. It includes a combination of personalized diabetes education, behavioral health awareness, and counseling. As part of the program, patients with diabetes can receive vaccinations, low-cost insulin, and other medication at thousands of Walmart pharmacies nationwide. John Wigneswaran, Walmart's chief medical officer, confirmed the program was developed in conjunction with the American Diabetes Association (ADA). "Education is key, and we are proud to partner with Walmart Health to develop a virtual diabetes management program for businesses," said Robert Gabbay, chief scientific and medical officer for the ADA.
