The latest Morbidity and Mortality report (MMWR) released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that from 1995 to 2010, there was at least a 100% increase in the prevalence of diagnosed diabetes cases in 18 states. Forty-two states saw an increase of at least 50%.
Earlier this year, a report in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine estimated that 42% of the U.S. population will be obese by 2030 and an additional 30 million Americans will be obese in 18 years.
Obesity is a major risk factor for Type 2 diabetes, and like the increased prevalence in diagnosed diabetes cases, the rate of obesity in the United States also increased over the last decade, although it now appears to have steadied.

On the Wednesday, April 16th, 2014 broadcast at 1PM ET/10AM PT our special guest is Michael G. Dermer, the Chief Incentive Officer at Welltok. The company notes:
'Welltok is a pioneer in health optimization that provides an integrated platform for payers, health systems, ACOs and other population health managers to help drive healthy consumer behaviors and increase healthcare value. At the core of Welltok's success is CaféWell, a Health Optimization Platform, which provides an engaging, rewarding way for consumers to take control of their physical, emotional and financial health.'
Michael's mission is 'to continue to educate and advocate for healthcare incentives so that we can grow stronger and healthier as individuals, an economy and as a Nation.'
The genesis of Welltok took form via it's predecessor company 'IncentOne'. When Michael Dermer originally formed IncentOne, he asked himself the following question:
'if the medical profession knows what we want each individual to do, and the savings it generates, couldn’t we simply reward people for doing these things?” Wouldn’t this solution pay for itself? If we applied this to all conditions, couldn’t we fix the system?'
Today we'll hear more about the test of this theory in the marketplace and learn more about the role of incentives in shaping healthy personal choices.
