More than 400 million people worldwide have diabetes, and the total healthcare expenditure is estimated at $760 billion, and growing. In addition to being expensive, managing this condition is time consuming and often complicated.

For patients with diabetes, maintaining their A1C at appropriate levels is key to avoiding hospital visits. Diabetes devices like insulin pens, continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps are crucial, but they don’t provide the comprehensive support many diabetes patients need in order to manage their condition.

That’s where digital solutions can make a significant difference.

Top challenges in diabetes

Diabetes dose management icon

Uneven and inconsistent dose management

Diabetes patients’ health is dependent on careful tracking of glucose levels, and this can represent a significant challenge for patients.

Diabetes poor adherence icon

Poor adherence

Nearly half of patients with diabetes do not achieve adequate glycemic control. Poor medication adherence is a key factor leading to higher-than-necessary rates of morbidity and mortality.

Diabetes limited communication icon

Limited patient-provider communication

With 95% of diabetes disease management done by the patient, providers often have limited real-time visibility into how well a patient is managing their condition between appointments.

Diabetes disparate data sources icon

Disparate data sources

Even when patients use digital devices, they often have to manually document their blood glucose data to share with their doctors, who are juggling disparate data sources across their patient population.
