Evidation Health Inc. recruited an additional 146 people to use the One Drop | Experts program with the One Drop | Mobile app on iOS only (without an Apple Watch). Results presented at the 77th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association included an A1c improvement of -0.90% among study completers and -1.00% among active users . Leveraging app-collected data, One Drop reported these same users improved, but not to the same degree as Apple Watch users :
• Weekly physical activity: +35 minutes
• Carbohydrate intake per meal: -20 grams
• Average blood glucose: -35 mg/dL (a -1.2% A1c reduction)
“Evaluating whether we’re moving the needle and affecting health outcomes is critical at One Drop,” says Jeff Dachis, CEO and Founder of One Drop. “We’re harnessing real-world data to understand One Drop's impact. So far, outcomes are consistent, compelling, and enhanced by the Apple Watch.” The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just released final guidance on real-world data, which can be user-generated in an app like One Drop. According to the FDA document, when data is relevant and reliable, it may constitute valid scientific evidence. “Our goals at One Drop are to improve the health of our users and to give them an incredible experience while they do it. At this intersection, we achieve meaningful outcomes,” says Dr. Chandra Osborn, Vice President of Health and Behavioral Informatics at One Drop. “With the help of Apple, we combine relevant and reliable passively-collected data, manually-entered data collected from our app, and objective glucose data from our meter, and we analyze all of them with the rigorous standards of scientific excellence.” 1 Kumar S., et al.
