Impact of SomaSignal Tests on the choice of glucose-lowering medications: An Adaptive Implementation Study

This Study is
No Longer Enrolling


This study plans to learn more about using a protein based test called the SomaSignal Cardiovascular (CV) Risk Test in Type 2 Diabetes (CVD-T2D) to improve medical care for patients. The SomaSignal CVD-T2D Test is a specialized blood test that measures the levels of 27 different proteins in your blood and uses the results to help predict your risk of cardiovascular events over the next few years. Providers will be randomized into informed and uninformed groups with their enrolled patients being put into the same group. Patients will be asked to attend 2 research visits along with 2 normally scheduled standard of care visits with their provider. Patients and providers in the informed group will receive CVD-T2D test results before their standard of care visits while those in the uninformed group will not receive results until the end of the study.
