We know diabetes.

The implications of the diabetes epidemic are felt by patients, providers, and payers.

We empower clients to deliver more efficient healthcare, improve patient quality of life, and decrease the financial burden to patients and payers.

We are at a unique crossroads in healthcare driven by the convergence of policy change, economic pressures and advances in personal health technology.

In the US, we spend $345 billion each year on diabetes-related costs, a large percentage of the $727 billion that goes to diabetes globally. This cost is born by those living with diabetes, taxpayers, and employers plus the lost productivity related to poorly-controlled diabetes.

Diabetes+Me provides multiple MACRA Quality Payment Program tenets and can help systems decrease the costs of complications of chronic disease. Our software impacts the outcomes that matter: better quality of life, more efficient healthcare delivery and decreased financial burden for patients and payers.

Currently there are 29.1 million Americans with diabetes and 80 million with prediabetes. The time is right to change the system.

Clinical guidelines establish goals for diabetes management that have been proven to reduce complications and morbidity associated with poorly-controlled diabetes. Only 18% of patients with diabetes, however, meet all of three treatment goals of A1C, blood pressure and LDL control.

Diabetes+Me is the bridge between population health and clinical management. Our tools leverage data, standardize workflows, and empower patients while allowing providers to deliver personalized treatment. Our data insights and decision-support tools improve efficiency and help providers make targeted treatment decisions.

Patients want to be healthier, but need the right tools and support from their healthcare team.

The complications of diabetes include cardiovascular disease, blindness, amputation, and kidney failure. These issues can be avoided by optimizing blood glucose control.

Diabetes+Me helps patients take ownership of their diabetes through its self-management tools and improves communication between patients and their care team.
