What data will be collected, and will my data be kept confidential?
The Omada Program Early Insights Study will be asking research participants to complete a short online questionnaire that will ask participants to answer questions about current pain experiences, adherence to prescribed medications, patient motivation and distress around diabetes self-care. Research participants will also be asked to visit a local Quest Diagnostics Service Center where blood pressure, a blood sample, and physical measurements will be taken by a trained technician. All questionnaire and participant data will be kept strictly confidential. All research data will be coded with unique identifiers and will only be available to research staff with a need to access the data.
My Employer/Health Plan is paying for my participation in the program. Will they have access to any of the data or the results of the Research Study?
Results will not be shared with employers, health plans, or any Omada staff outside of the research team. All data will be de-identified as required by HIPAA and analyzed to determine the impact of the Omada Health Program. No data will be shared or made available to employers, health plans or any Omada staff outside of the research team. Participants will receive a copy of their own results from laboratory tests and measurements. Quest Diagnostics is not authorized to share these results with anyone other than the Omada research team and the participant.
Quest announced a large data breach on June 4th. Will this impact the privacy of my Quest lab test?
No, Quest reports that the data breach occurred with a collections vendor it had hired, and not with its lab results portal. Your test results here will be available to you after you log into Quest’s results portal. Quest is obliged to keep your test results private and secure under the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act, HIPAA.
What if I am not comfortable with some of the questions I am being asked in the online questionnaire and/or my measurements being taken?
Research participants do not have to answer any question that makes them uncomfortable. Research participants also do not have to agree to any measurement that makes them uncomfortable.
