The numbers are alarming. More than 29 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, and they want to spend less time managing it. People who treat diabetes want more, better data, and real-time information; payers – including healthcare companies, employers, and, increasingly, all of us – want better outcomes. Enter a new wave of technology that helps personalize solutions and motivate patients individually. This panel brings together patients and key stakeholders who are driving the next generation of technology, drugs, and medical devices, designed to ease the burden of managing chronic conditions like diabetes.
