On. Demand vs. Traditional Diabetes Management

Disrupting Diabetes Management

Traditional Diabetes Management VS On.Demand

The problem

With 29 million Americans experiencing diabetes and 86 million at risk of developing diabetes, traditional diabetes management is failing and costing Americans $245 billion.

One disease, so many consequences.

  • Medical costs for people with diabetes are twice as high as for people without diabetes.
  • Risk of death for adults with diabetes is 50% higher than adults without diabetes.
  • 9 out of 10 people do not know they have prediabetes
  • 15-30% of people with prediabetes will develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years

Frank - Then:

Traditional models may fail to drive plan compliance, increase costs and cause confusion for the individual.

Here’s an inside look at Traditional Diabetes Management:
  • Frank, 35, is diagnosed with diabetes.
  • His physician writes him a prescription for testing supplies and says, “See you in a month or two!”
  • At first, Frank is great at monitoring his blood sugar, but after a week starts testing less regularly.
  • Frank has a reading over 350. No one is around to prevent this so he is rushed to the ER.
  • Frank runs out of test strips and his compliance decreases. His blood glucose levels consistently fall out of the recommended range resulting in high costs and poor health.
  • Frank is continuously non-compliant and doesn’t have anyone to guide him. Sixty days pass, and he doesn’t understand why he has to wait.

Frank - Now:

Our solution is designed to reach individuals in real-time through an advanced automatic cloud that triggers intervention, such as targeted materials and one-on-one coaching. Through high-tech, easy-to-use devices we are able to drive daily compliance, improve outcomes, reduce waste and drive down costs.

Here’s an inside look at On.Demand Diabetes Management:
  • Frank, 35, is diagnosed with diabetes.
  • His physician writes him a prescription for testing supplies and when Frank fills his prescription he is automatically enrolled in the On.Demand program.
  • Frank receives his testing supplies delivered straight to his door.
  • At first, Frank is great at monitoring his blood sugar, but that soon changes. However, this time a care support representative intervenes to encourage him to continue testing on a regular basis.
  • Frank has a reading over 350, registering an alert. A clinician contacts Frank to discuss his daily routine and help him understand the effects on his blood sugar.
  • Frank’s compliance increases dramatically, but his blood glucose levels consistently fall out of range. A clinician contacts Frank to offer enrollment into the diabetes management coaching program to teach Frank how to better manage his diabetes.
  • Frank continues to test regularly and receives test refills automatically at his door, while working with his coach.
  • Frank completes the coaching program and his data continues to be analyzed. He will receive outreach and tailored education based on his testing patterns and glucose levels.
