Announcing the Only Diabetes Management Platform for iOS and Apple Watch Enabling All People With Diabetes to Navigate Diabetes Together
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- Apr 21, 2015 -- Today, Informed Data Systems, Inc. announces the launch of One Drop, available immediately for free download in the Apple iOS App Store on iTunes. Download it here.
One Drop harnesses the power of mobile computing and data science to empower people with diabetes to live healthier lives.
One Drop is the only consumer diabetes management platform available for people with Type 1, Type 2, pre-diabetes, or diabetes caregivers that enables users to simply and easily log the core behavioral and biometric components of diabetes (Glucose, Food, Insulin, and Physical Activity) in one place, and anonymously share that information with a community of like-minded people, delivering actionable, data driven insights to everyone on the platform.
"As a person with Type 1 diabetes, I know firsthand that people with diabetes are really the ultimate 'quantified selfers'," said Jeff Dachis, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of One Drop, "And yet to manage each day we are still dealing with non-integrated, disconnected tools and technology, data sources locked in silos, and a healthcare universe that unwittingly disempowers, and demotivates." Dachis added, "With One Drop, we want to change all that for Type 1, Type 2, and pre-diabetes. We believe we can dramatically and positively impact the way people experience their diabetes and in the process improve their health outcomes, reduce adverse incidents, and dramatically reduce costs for everyone."
One Drop's platform allows users to clearly see the relationships that food, insulin, and activity have with glucose levels, and learn how others in the One Drop community navigate their daily lives, from one good glucose reading to the next.
"A key component in staying healthy is maintaining in-range glucose levels," said Oded Kraft, former Vice President of Products at Medingo (acquired by Roche). "I have never seen a straightforward tool like this, and it's really quite useful." Kraft added, "One Drop's unique 'story view' enables every user to anonymously see how other users navigate their everyday lives. This gives One Drop users meaningful context to their numbers, something missing from the current diabetes marketplace."
"Diabetes is a societal pandemic that requires behavioral solutions. One Drop focuses on empowerment, motivation, and mindfulness as core components that foster better individual decision making and healthier people," said Doug Ulman, former CEO of LIVESTRONG, now CEO of Pelotonia, "Enabling people who live with the disease to help each other through One Drop's delightful, connected, and engaging experience flies in the face of the current state of diabetes, which is very refreshing. I think people are going to love this."
