One Drop | Experts diabetes education platform to deliver world-class diabetes prevention program; expected launch in Q1, 2018
NEW YORK, October 17, 2017 – One Drop today announced the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have awarded Pending Recognition to its newest addition to the One Drop | Experts education platform: Revive. Revive is a 12-month weight loss and diabetes prevention program (“DPP”) based on the PreventT2 curriculum, which helps people lose 5 to 7% of their body weight, increase their physical activity, and prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes. This extension of One Drop | Experts brings affordable, accessible, and effective weight loss and diabetes prevention solutions to everyone living with prediabetes nationwide.
“Prediabetes is a public health crisis and Revive is the logical next step for One Drop’s ‘full-stack’ data-driven diabetes management solution,” said VP of clinical operations and innovation at One Drop, Mark Heyman, PhD, CDCES. “This new program builds on the success of One Drop | Experts, the first and only digital diabetes self-management education program recognized by the American Diabetes Association*, to bring our fully digital behavior change platform to the 90 million people with prediabetes in the United States.”
All Revive participants will work one-on-one with a One Drop | Expert coach, who provides evidence-based education, support, encouragement and accountability throughout the program. Revive will be available to consumers, employers, health systems, insurers, and government agencies at an expected $200 annually per enrolled user, making it one of the most cost-effective solutions with the highest ROI in market.
“One in three Americans will die prematurely from conditions related to lifestyle or habits. Through a combination of behavioral science, professional health coaching, peer support, connected devices, and the award-winning, evidence-based One Drop platform, we have helped people with diabetes improve their lives and avoid many life-threatening and life-altering complications,” said One Drop CEO and founder, Jeff Dachis. “With Revive, we can improve the lives of even more people and prevent disease before it starts.”
The One Drop | Experts program is data-driven and clinically effective. At this year’s American Diabetes Association 77th Scientific Sessions, Evidation Health, Inc. reported results of an independent non-randomized clinical study evaluating the effectiveness of the One Drop mobile app and One Drop | Experts coaching service using passively collected data and A1c tests. In only 3 months, people with T2D improved their A1c by -1.00% among active users who used the app and messaged a coach at least once and -1.32% among active users with baseline A1c ≥ 9.0% (1).
