Clinical and Economic Analysis in
Type 2 Diabetes.

12-Month Clinical Trial

In a prospective, randomized, controlled study, Quinn et al. (Diabetes Care, 2011) found that, individuals with type 2 diabetes whose A1C levels were > 7.5% at the time of enrollment, and who were randomized to use a mobile phone app to help them manage their diabetes in addition to usual care, improved A1C by an average 1.9%. Persons randomized to usual care alone improved A1C by an average of 0.7%. The difference between the intervention group and the control group was 1.2% (P < 0.001) over 12 months.
Methodology-Primary endpoint: change in A1C over one year. Randomization to one of four groups: (1) usual care (n=56), (2) usual care plus patient mobile app/access to web portal for diabetes management (n=23), (3) usual care, mobile app/portal for patient, plus provider access to raw patient data (n=22), and (4) usual care, mobile app/portal for patient, plus patient data tied to decision support for their physician (n=62). 213 patients enrolled; 163 included in the analysis. Limitations- Private insurance only. Study dropout rates required use of mixed-effects statistical modeling to impute missing observations

The impact of A1C Reduction on Cost Savings.

Study Set Up

Welldoc funded a retrospective analysis with IBM Watson Health to test the relationship between A1C reduction and cost savings.

DATA INPUTS

IBM Watson Health was provided starting and ending A1C data from 3,000+ BlueStar users with type 2 diabetes.

STUDY POPULATION

IBM Watson Health ran user data through their MarketScan Database, which captures claims data of more than 200 million individuals in the US.
