Shortlister hosted Reed Campbell, Product Marketing Manager, and Scott Johnson, Patient Success Manager at Roche Diabetes Care. They shared why diabetes care is an essential component to a well-rounded benefits portfolio and how remote care can help improve engagement and reduce healthcare costs.
The “numbers” of diabetes are often overwhelming for both people with diabetes and employers
Research shows that engagement with newly diagnosed people with type 2 diabetes can increase by 66% when timely education is delivered through their phones.
With unique benefits, personalized support for participants, such as live coaching, award-winning challenges, and per-active-member-per-month pricing to fit into comprehensive, diversified benefits packages, RocheDiabetes Health Connection makes diabetes management easy.
When it comes to engagement, one of the most crucial pillars of RocheDiabetes Health Connection is mySugr. mySugr is a free smartphone app that wirelessly connects to blood glucose meters and logs testing data automatically.
mySugr provides real human support to people with diabetes. When a person with diabetes is enrolled in the RocheDiabetes Health Connection program, mySugr pairs them with a mySugr coach – certified diabetes care and education specialist – to provide one-on-one support and help them set and achieve health-related goals.
To test a new approach to encouragement, they launched a series of coach-guided challenges, including (but not limited to):
Both challenges pointed to a clear outcome: coach-guided support leads to lasting health benefits for people with diabetes. Giving participants, not just the skills but also the understanding of the importance of all-around health in relation to diabetes improved the adoption of healthy habits.
Surveys show that companies that support diabetes management programs like RocheDiabetes Health Connection show the following results:
The numbers above are a clear indication that digital offerings such as RocheDiabetes Health Connection bring crucial value and support employees with diabetes in the workplace and at home.
RocheDiabetes’ number one goal remains to help people living with diabetes track and manage their blood sugar so they may have better control of their health and their life in general.
