Text4baby firm's new diabetes app

Share this article:

Mobile health firm Voxiva, which was part of the innovative Johnson & Johnson-supported text4baby program, is looking to tackle type 2 diabetes with Care4Life.

The mobile health program includes a personalized patient portal and may also be expanded to include an app (feedback from three test sites will be used to tweak the project), but the text element is the key driver—in addition to delivering advice and education information, users can also send information about glucose levels and doctor appointments through their phones and into the patient profile. Text messaging rates are the only cost linked to the initiative.­
