Livongo’s DPP recogized by the CDC. Digital chronic care company Livongo Health’s Diabetes Prevention Program has received full recognition from the CDC, according to a release from the company. The designation implies that the digital offering meets the agency’s standards as a Type 2 diabetes prevention and lifestyle change intervention, and is listed within the CDC’s online referral tool.

“CDC recognition validates the effectiveness of Livongo’s Diabetes Prevention Program and complements our success in diabetes management,” Glen Tullman, CEO of Livongo, said in a statement. “Diabetes represents one of the fastest growing public health challenges facing our country today. Our goal is to partner with our members to prevent diabetes and where we can’t, provide world-class programs to make it easier for our members with diabetes to stay healthy until a cure is discovered.”
