mHealth Solution from AT&T and WellDoc® AT&T plans to deploy an end-to-end solution around a cutting-edge mobile solution to help people with diabetes better track, monitor and manage their disease. The mHealth Solution enables patients to enter information, including blood sugar readings, into a wireless application that provides instant feedback and specific guidance based on clinical algorithms. Nurse managers and physicians can also use the system to track progress, and obtain decision-support on care pathways for the patient. AT&T, working with WellDoc, plans to introduce the solution in the first half of 2011 to a discrete number of AT&T employees suffering from diabetes. Thereafter, AT&T and WellDoc plan to offer the solution on an evaluation basis to HCSC, one of the largest health payors in the United States. The solution is scheduled to be made available to other insurers, disease management organizations and corporate payors later this year.
