New developments that provide opportunities to enhance cost-effective diabetes care include advances in the pharmacologic treatment of diabetes, new drug delivery devices, innovations in patient management strategies, contracting strategies that incentivize effective interventions, and mobile health technologies. Payers must carefully consider the utility of these advances when making coverage decisions and designing benefits. To engage national stakeholders in a discussion about how to utilize innovations in diabetes care to optimize patient outcomes, the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy organized the Partnership Forum on Navigating Innovations in Diabetes Care in Arlington, Virginia, on July 19-20, 2016. The forum explored current trends and advances in diabetes treatments and engaged in discussions about how organizations can leverage these emerging options to develop strategies that improve coordination of care and patient outcomes, while managing limited health resources. Additionally, stakeholders were tasked with identifying gaps in evidence that hinder decision making around novel therapies and other advances that are of direct relevance to managed care organizations.
