  • 3. 2002 2007 2034E$375$300$225$150$75$0Diabetes is a paradigm just the tip of the iceberg$inbillions$336$174$132Chronic Disease Consumes 70% ofHealthcare SpendingSame for pulmonary disease, heart failure, hypertension
  • 4. A SimpleSolutionA TragicWaste
  • 5.  About 3x the cost of other members in the population Beyond direct spend lies the burden of … absenteeism, increased workers comp risk, decreasedproductivity, and replacement. (ADA estimate $3000/year)Non-diabeticPopulationDiabetic PopulationDiabetes affects 10% of population,but incurs 30% of costsMembers Healthcare Costs
  • 6. Example from an actual state employee population The cost trend threatens theviability of every healthinsurance program, nomatter how it is funded. A disproportionate numberof the highest claims havediabetes as a primary orcomorbid condition A new approach toManagement of thispopulation is the only hope
  • 7. ~15%RISK$HighLowTraditional Disease Management Has Failed“High risk” patients (stratified based onpast claims costs) are the focus of existingcare management efforts.Identifying and addressinglast year’s high costpatients misses themajority of those who willbe next year’s high costpatients
  • 8. RISK$HighLow Monitor 100% of the population. Data monitoring for: Adherence Extreme Highs Extreme Lows Sustained Highs or Lows Patterns Identifying those that are notadhering to best self-managementpractices. Early identification of high-risk, potentially high-cost episodes Intervene with data that enablesmeaningful and contextualcoaching.The Future: Diabetes Health Monitoring & Management
  • 9. That’s where mHealth becomes indispensableAn FDA/CE-cleared Continua-compliant server and portal thatcollects wireless data from TelcareBGM, enables display of data andcaregiver messaging.510(k) cleared for both home use andprofessional use.The Telcare BGM – a cellularenabled wireless glucose meter.510(k) clearedFDA/CE-compliant Smartphone Apps that communicate withthe server and enable parents and peers to create a networkof support for the patient.

  • 11. Empowering the Patient:Diabetes is Social• A patient spends 2 hours or less a yeartalking to the doctor• Daily caregivers include nurses, diabeteseducators, family, maybe the school nurse,and most importantly, peers.• Diabetes is about what you eat, how youexercise, and what medicines you take.• People with Diabetes universally express aprofound sense of isolation.• Telcare is the first company to connectpeople with diabetes to their socialnetwork through the cloud using the toolthey use the most – their glucose meter
  • 12. OutcomesWhat have we learned so far?mHealth alone is not a solution. It’s a powerfullplatform for engagement.
  • 13. • “Light touch” intervention• Meaningful result seen in alltreated patients• 11% relative difference inA1c in those who engaged>1x per week• Telcare’s technologyeliminates the need to “doanything” in order totransmit and receive
  • 14. 0%10%20%30%40%50%60%70%80%90%Expected DirectPurchaseHMO Endo Endo + CDE ContractResearch Org.ManagedCare% Adherence to testing by site of CareAdherence: varies by degree of professional engagement
