Alere, WellDoc, AT&T ForHealth deliver diabetes management (US)

Health management company Alere Health LLC will be joining the AT&T ForHealth combine in integrating both AT&T and WellDoc’s DiabetesManager into its care management for adults with type 2 diabetes. It will be used for Alere’s higher risk patients, versus their current Mya system for lower acuity patients. Alere currently monitors over 290,000 individuals with diabetes. Health plans, insurers and corporate payers are being targeted. For wireless providers, this is a key move forward for AT&T in FBQs #3 and #4, ‘who’s looking at the data’ and ‘actioning data’.
