Diabetes is one of the leading chronic diseases in Australia that challenges our health system. Approximately 1 million Australians over the age of 18 have Type 2 diabetes, and in excess of 2 million people are either pre-diabetic or at high risk of developing this condition. Identification of those who might be at risk is critical.
A large proportion of the population is also unaware they have Type 2 diabetes and are at high risk of developing the disease. Early detection is one of the key elements to help prevent or delay its development. The Australian Type 2 Diabetes Risk Assessment (AUSDRISK) Tool is a validated tool to identify modifiable risk factors in type 2 diabetes.
Outcome Health currently partners with South Western Sydney Primary Health Network (SWSPHN) and has recently released a FREE chronic disease POLAR data intelligence module focusing on diabetes for all POLAR PHNs. This module aims to assist clinicians in managing patients with a current diagnosis of diabetes and those who are at risk of developing the condition.
