Digital health leader WellDoc and leading diabetes healthcare organization, the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE), announced today they will partner to incorporate the “AADE Diabetes Education Curriculum: A Guide to Successful Self-Management” in the BlueStar digital therapeutic platform.
If you’re not familiar, BlueStar is an FDA-cleared digital therapeutic used to help adults living with type 2 diabetes self-manage their condition.
This partnership marks the first time AADE, a professional membership organization comprised of healthcare professionals from multiple disciplines dedicated to improving diabetes care through innovative education, management and support, has partnered with an organization to provide its curriculum in a consumer-friendly digital format.
“The dual engagement of the person with diabetes and his or her clinical care team is the core of what makes BlueStar a successful tool in helping improve outcomes in type 2 diabetes by reducing A1C for our users,” said WellDoc President and CEO Kevin McRaith. “Working with AADE and its membership is both a natural and positive fit for WellDoc. The AADE curriculum is best-in-class and offering it in a consumer-friendly digital format will only further enhance the value of BlueStar.”
We’re told that as part of this partnership, AADE and WellDoc will explore how to collectively engage AADE’s members.
