Brief Summary:
The goal of this study is to evaluate an online Diabetes Prevention Program adapted for patients with prediabetes in safety net health care settings.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prediabetes Overweight Obesity Behavioral: Prevent Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) demonstrated that intensive behavioral counseling is a successful approach to reduce the risk of developing diabetes in patients with prediabetes. While the DPP lifestyle intervention was successful and group based adaptations of the DPP have positive results, scalable alternatives that allow for even broader reach are necessary. Omada Health has developed an online, group-based, recognized DPP program (Prevent). The goal of this study is to evaluate a literacy-adapted version of Prevent for patients with prediabetes in safety net health care settings.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: online Diabetes Prevention Program
Participants will receive access to a 12-month online diabetes prevention program modeled after the CDC DPP curriculum. Participants receive online curriculum, access to a live health coach, interactive group message forums, and connected weight and activity monitoring devices.
Behavioral: Prevent
Intensive behavioral counseling for diabetes prevention and healthy lifestyle management. Recipients have access to online curriculum, a live health coach, group-based communication forums, and connected technology to track weight and physical activity.

No Intervention: Matched Control
A de-identified dataset of control subjects matched on age, gender, prediabetes diagnosis, body mass index, comorbidities and socioeconomic status will be cultivated for comparison to the active intervention arm.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. % Weight Loss [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 months, 12 months ]
    Percentage of body weight loss

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. HbA1c [ Time Frame: baseline, 6 months, 12 months ]
    fingerstick HbA1C

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Program engagement [ Time Frame: cumulative (summary total across baseline to 12 months) ]
    Cumulative number of points of engagement with the online program
