The impact of A1C reduction on cost savings in type 2 diabetes populations

Welldoc provided starting and ending A1C data from 3,000 BlueStar users to IBM Watson for a retrospective analysis funded by Welldoc. IBM Watson mapped this data onto their patient claims database to estimate cost savings associated with utilizing BlueStar. Documented A1C reductions associated with BlueStar are correlated with cost differences associated with the following factors.

Hospitalizations & ER Visits

Cost of supplies and pharmacies

Cost of co-morbid complications

Study Population

Claims data from patients in the IBM Watson’s MarketScan Database, which captures data of more than 80 million individuals.

Did You Know?

Reduced workplace productivity and absenteeism accounts for roughly $30 billion per year of diabetes healthcare expenses.

Study findings

Once the patients were stratified by A1C band, the analysis was run through the commercial and the medicare sector. For an overview on A1C and what it means, click here.
