Outcomes that stand out

Clinically effective approach. Meaningful results.

One Drop program participants experience life-changing results, including lower estimated A1C in as little as three months. Our program participants are more active, eat smarter, and build healthy habits that last.

1.9% eA1C reduction1

35 minutes of additional activity per week2,3

20g fewer carbs per meal2,3

Savings up to $2,450 per person per year

Our peer-reviewed studies demonstrate that One Drop lowers A1C by 0.8% to 1.9% in just 3 months. These A1C reductions can drive $1,000 - $2,450 in direct cost savings per participant per year.4,5,6,7 

Advancing health equity by improving outcomes

One Drop is committed to conducting outcomes research to the best of our abilities that investigates program effectiveness within historically marginalized and minority communities in a way that provides benefits to individual participants, does no harm, and generates meaningful insights for continuous program improvement.

7. Cost savings and ROI estimates are based on medical cost savings published by Grabner et al. Cost savings for A1C improvements are adjusted to current 2021 values using the medical component of the Consumer Price Index for each year of costs reported. Cost savings estimates are based on findings from two randomized control trials evaluating One Drop’s effect on A1C. Return on investment calculations are based on per person, monthly enrolled participant cost of One Drop’s diabetes program.
