Project Description

Diabetes

Integrated online community to empower patients and enhance continuity of care

Diabetes is a prevalent, chronic condition that is costly in terms of human suffering and global healthcare spending. It is often associated with a variety of other chronic diseases. On average, people with diabetes make up to 180 decisions about their health every day, collecting and evaluating valuable information on personal and medical factors from blood sugar levels to exercise to food choices. The care team of people living with diabetes can add up to more than 10 different types of care providers. This makes living with diabetes complex to self-manage and for many also very stressful.

The challenge

We want to encourage and support people to take full command of their disease by providing them with the right decision tools.

The solution

  • Next generation virtual community connects consumers to healthcare providers and allows them to share both consumers’ personal health data and healthcare organization’s clinical data
  • Via mobile app, patients can track blood glucose levels, insulin use, nutrition, physical activity, mood and stress and get data-driven feedback and coaching guidance* at home and on the go
  • Built on the Philips cloud-based HealthSuite digital platform and the Salesforce App Cloud 

What did we do?

REshape is partner of Philips and Salesforce in the development of the community
