Delivering a return on investment


In 2009 the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM), University of Canberra, developed a model to find the most effective ways to bridge the gap between current and possible levels of diabetes control within primary health care.
The NATSEM model compared various pharmaceutical interventions, along with exercise, counselling and the APCC Program. Modelled results were projected to 2053.

The APCC Program was shown to be the most effective intervention for the treatment of diabetes within primary health care across a range of measures with:

  • Highest total health care saving
  • Highest return on investment
  • Lowest average cost per participant
  • More patients managed
