Last week was the launch of Care4Life, a mobile-based diabetes education and support program that leverages text messaging, a mobile app and a web portal. “Since 99% of text messages are read and over 90% are read within three minutes, this channel can be very effective in its ability to pace the delivery of education and reinforce desired behaviors on an ongoing basis, ” said Theresa Garnero, APRN, BC-ADM, MSN, CDE, who developed the content, which focuses on helping patients with Type 2 diabetes to better control their condition and adhere to their prescribed treatment plan. The program helps users to create an electronic record of blood glucose readings, blood pressure, weight and exercise online that they can view themselves and share with providers. Care4Life is available in both English and Spanish. Currently the program to health plans and providers is being offered at no charge until the end of the year. www.care4life.com
