One Drop announces improved accuracy of outcomes forecasts at ATTD 2021

NEW YORK, June 10, 2021—One Drop, a leader in precision health solutions for people living with chronic conditions worldwide, today announced it has surpassed 25 billion longitudinal biometric data points powering its precision health platform. This milestone accompanies an increase in accuracy of One Drop's outcomes forecasts, presented at the 14th International Conference on Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD 2021). 

To date, One Drop has amassed over 25 billion data points from millions of people in 195 countries. Those data points include glucose, A1C, blood pressure, weight, medications, food, physical activity, heart rate, other self-care data (e.g., sleep), and personal data (e.g., gender, year of diagnosis). One Drop uses its diverse spectrum of data to train the proprietary machine learning algorithms behind its CE-marked eight-hour glucose forecasts, predictive capabilities for people using continuous glucose monitors (CGMs), CE-marked blood pressure insights, and long-term outcomes forecasts for diabetes-related biomarkers

"We can’t keep throwing money at treating the symptoms of sickness and neglect the investment in prevention required to keep people healthy," said Jeff Dachis, One Drop CEO and founder. "Prevention is possible when we arm people with real-time information and empower them to make meaningful behavior changes that we know lead to sustained health and improved outcomes. One Drop uses artificial intelligence to forecast biomarkers (e.g., blood sugar and blood pressure) and offers real-time practical advice to change or reinforce behaviors. As our data wealth continues to grow in size and diversity, so will the strength of our predictive capabilities and the impact we drive on long-term outcomes and cost savings."

This month, One Drop presented improved accuracy of outcomes forecasts from short-term continuous glucose monitor (CGM) data at ATTD 2021 [1]. Published results indicate one month, two months, or three months of CGM data are required from an individual to realize an increase in accuracy compared to forecasts generated using self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) data [2]. The short-term use of CGM to inform longer-term outcomes predictions may play a role in the design of effective short-term use of CGM.

The One Drop app (iOS and Android) collects health and self-care data passively via connected medical devices (e.g., One Drop glucose meter) and direct integrations with HealthKit, GoogleFit, Dexcom, Fitbit, Apple Watch, and Medtronic’s InPen, as well as manual entry. Next week, One Drop will reach 26 billion health data points and expects to add more than ten billion additional data points by the end of 2021. The company intends to launch a multi-analyte dermal sensor (biosensor) that will generate thousands of new data points per member per day. Beyond driving exponential growth of the unparalleled data wealth behind One Drop’s predictive capabilities, the biosensor will bring real-time continuous health sensing technology to a broader audience and at a dramatically lower cost than traditional CGM. One Drop has been available to consumers, employers, insurers, and healthcare providers since 2016.
