WellDoc's DiabetesManager is a real-time virtual coach for Type 2 diabetic patients. They log their medication and carbohydrate intake, blood glucose, and other readings into mobile devices such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets. Using the patient's data, behavioral algorithms provide automatic, real-time virtual coaching, including reminders to patients about testing, medicine, lifestyle adjustments, and meal recommendations. The advice helps address both high or low glucose readings based on the patient's condition and treatment plan. The data is periodically sent to the patient's doctor to help fill the information gap that often develops between office visits and facilitate the disease management discussion. Various health plans offer the tool to their patient members free of charge.
