Power of 10: Get 1, Give 10One Drop has a charitable giving program. It's called Power of 10. For every One Drop subscription sold in the U.S., One Drop donates 10 One Drop | Experts subscriptions to people with diabetes receiving care at safety-net clinics.
Why Power of 10?Diabetes affects nearly 1 in 10 people in the U.S., but certain groups are at greater risk.1 People from racial/ethnic minority groups with low incomes and limited education are more likely to have type 2 diabetes.1,2 Over 15% of Native Americans/Alaska Natives, 13% of non-Hispanic blacks, and 12% of people of Hispanic ethnicity have diabetes.1 That's 1.5-2 times more than non-Hispanic whites (7.4%).1 Once diagnosed with diabetes, certain groups are more likely to have suboptimal health outcomes. People from racial/ethnic minority groups and those with a lower socioeconomic position tend to have higher A1cs, more emergency room visits, hospitalizations, complications, and premature mortality.3
Why Safety-Net Clinics?Safety-net clinics give care to people in medically-underserved areas that are underinsured.4 People with insurance can seek care at these clinics. Safety-net users with insurance are both more likely to have diabetes compared to non-safety-net users, and be a racial/ethnic minority or have a low income.5
Donating One Drop | ExpertsThere are more than 4,100 diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) programs offered across the U.S.1 However, DSMES is limited in nonmetropolitan socially-disadvantaged counties. Counties with fewer insured people and people with less education have less access to a DSMES program.6 One Drop | Experts, a personal diabetes coach in your pocket, is accessible to anyone with a smartphone. Experts is the first and only digitally-delivered DSMES program accredited by the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Education and coaching occur entirely through the One Drop | Mobile app's in-app chat. “Expert” coaches are real, Certified Diabetes Educators that educate, answer questions, help with problem-solving, and provide ongoing support and self-care accountability to people with diabetes. One Drop | Experts respond anytime, anywhere and without prescriptions, hassles, or appointments.
DSMES & Experts Improve OutcomesDSMES lowers A1c. A1c improves by -0.88%.7 With One Drop | Experts, A1c goes down by -1.3%.8 Accessible, effective, and affordable, DSMES is a rising tide that lifts all boats. It may also reduce well-known disparities in diabetes.
