This partnership with Cecelia Health is another way that LifeScan continues to focus on the needs of people with diabetes and other chronic conditions and their caregivers to promote effective management. Cecelia Health's clinician-led coaching model has a proven track record of increasing medication adherence by 20% and reducing A1C values by an average of 1.5 points. Cecelia Health's coaching model coupled with LifeScan's OneTouch Reveal app, which uses a cloud-based patient-engagement ecosystem linking people to providers, offers a powerful combination of data, technology, and human insight to optimize diabetes and other chronic disease management.
"As a person living with Type 1 diabetes, I appreciate LifeScan's focus on providing comprehensive support for people living with diabetes," said David Weingard, founder and chief executive officer of Cecelia Health.
