Our good friend at Diabetes Investor, David Kliff, has made a point of focusing on the difficulty of a patient’s success just because we have “whizbang” apps and devices to make glucose control almost automatic.

The data shows he is probably right, as keeping patients on medications and causing them to want to improve has a much bigger effect than having an app.

 

This week, Steve interviews Dr. Lisa Latts, a practicing physician and Deputy Chief Health Officer at Watson Health IBM. Dr. Latts presents a different picture of the use of apps and AI for successfully managing diabetes and her insight might just surprise you.
