Type 2 diabetes prevention is an important national
goal, particularly for the Veterans Health Administration,
in which one in four Veterans has diabetes.
However, most Americans do not know whether
they have prediabetes. When designing and implementing
a prediabetes screening program in a health
system, decisions related to logistical factors such as
who to screen, when to screen, and how to screen
may have a significant effect on screening program
reach as well as on rates of detected prediabetes.
