Diabetes Store, Inc. (DSI) Therapeutic Shoe Program is a quality, cost-effective diabetic foot care program focused on promoting and maintaining active, healthy lifestyles while reducing lower extremity complications of diabetes.
Our Therapeutic Shoe Program is an important component of the overall DSI Diabetes Management Program that focuses on providing tools and services to support and improve self-management of those diagnosed with diabetes.
This unique program offers diabetic foot assessments and fittings, for heat molded inserts or custom inserts and therapeutic shoes, provided by our nationwide network of Pedorthists/Qualified Fitters, in the convenience of provider clinics, health systems, or in the place of residence including senior communities and private homes.
During an onsite visit a Pedorthist/Qualified Fitter from our national network will perform assessments to identify signs of heat, redness, discoloration, swelling and reduced sensation which may result in ulcerations and further complications.
The DSI National Therapeutic Shoe Program is a unique program offered to DSI affiliated health plans, health systems, medical providers, and pharmacies throughout the US. Through this Program DSI provides therapeutic shoe-related services in provider clinics/offices or the resident’s home, including senior facilities and private homes.
In addition to the fitter-specific services, DSI performs insurance eligibility verification, obtains the signed physician orders, and manages the entire initial and reorder process through the point of delivery and acceptance of the product, as well as notification when the customer is eligible for a reorder.
Traditionally, therapeutic shoes have been provided through independent fitters and retail specialty/prosthetic shoe shops. In recognizing the value of placing therapeutic shoes on individuals with diabetes, to reduce the incidence of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), DSI has established a formalized, provider network of Pedorthists/Qualified Fitters built to serve diabetic individuals associated with DSI’s partners such as payors, health systems, providers, pharmacies, and senior facilities
DSI has developed a presence throughout the US and is expanding this national network to include additional Pedorthist/Qualified Fitters in numerous markets throughout the US.
This expansion is providing the opportunity for additional Qualified Fitters to work with DSI and serve pre-qualified customers provided by DSI on a regular basis.
