Mount Sinai Health System and Livongo Health, a Chicago-based consumer digital health company, today announced the launch of a comprehensive diabetes management program in the NYC. The program, already available to Mount Sinai employees, combines the Livongo for Diabetes solution with the clinical capabilities of the Mount Sinai Clinical Diabetes Institute and the Mount Sinai’s Diabetes and Cardiovascular Alliance to offer a comprehensive health management solution to patients with diabetes. The diabetes management program will be expanded to broader populations across the New York market through Mount Sinai’s network of physicians and affiliated providers.
Diabetes Management Program Overview
Livongo Health’s approach to diabetes management is guided by three simple principles:
1. people with diabetes want to spend less time on their condition;
2. people who treat diabetes want less data and more, better, real-time information so they can help;
3. payers – including healthcare companies, employers and, increasingly, all of us – want to spend less
The joint program will provide an end-to-end ecosystem that empowers people with chronic conditions, including diabetes, to live better. Through its smart data analytics platform, health data is captured from a variety of sources including Livongo’s connected glucose meters, personal devices, EHRs, and medication records. After the data is gathered, relevant and timely insights and alerts are then provided in real-time to the person with diabetes, their network of family and friends, and their Mount Sinai care team.
“We are excited to build on the great work Mount Sinai is doing in diabetes management today. With our connected technology, real-time data, and predictive analytics, we are partnering to bring a robust program to empower thousands of Mount Sinai employees, dependents, and the health consumers Mount Sinai serves who are challenged with managing diabetes to live better,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Livongo Health in an official statement.
Livongo Health is the first diabetes management program targeted to people with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes is completely mobile, digital and personalized to the user. It allows people with diabetes to effectively manage important aspects of their illness on their own. It also allows them to easily keep their family members and care team informed in real-time. Livongo was also recently named an accredited diabetes education program by the American Association of Diabetes Educators, making it the first online/telehealth program of its kind to achieve this prestigious accreditation status.
