MedicalResearch.com: What functions will people with diabetes have access to? How can the app help people living with diabetes control their disease?

Response: The app helps patients track their blood glucose, activity, meals, and medicines—the four cornerstones of diabetes care. It also includes helpful information about healthy eating and lifestyle choices from the Novo Nordisk Cornerstones4Care® diabetes support program.

The app syncs with the majority of diabetes devices available, including blood glucose meters, insulin pumps, and continuous glucose monitors, as well as many fitness trackers such as Fitbit and Moves. If patients use more than one device, they can see all their data together. The app also lets patients set reminders, and puts educational content right at their fingertips. 

MedicalResearch.com: What should readers take away from this overview?

Response: At Novo Nordisk, we aspire to leadership in digital health that complements Novo Nordisk research and development expertise to ultimately improve the outcomes of the 29 million people with diabetes in the U.S. Together, Novo Nordisk and Glooko are working to deliver jointly-developed and branded digital health solutions for people with diabetes. The partnership’s joint offerings will also assist healthcare professionals to engage and manage patients with the aid of population-wide data reporting.

MedicalResearch.com: Is there anything else you would like to add? (i.e. When will it be available? How much does it cost? What platforms will be able to access it?)

Response: The app is available for patients to download on the iTunes App Store (for iPhones) or Google Play (for Android devices). There is no cost to download or use the app. Patients can also download the C4C app when they enroll into Cornerstones4Care.com.
