One Drop Expands Features and Subscription Programs to Provide More Accessible Care to People With Diabetes Worldwide
One Drop also announced the launch of two new specialized One Drop | Experts diabetes education programs ? "Overcoming Diabetes Burnout" and "Advanced Carb Counting" ? for its ADA-recognized diabetes education* and coaching service One Drop | Experts. These offerings reaffirm One Drop's commitment to providing the most advanced diabetes education and care to everyone with diabetes and a smartphone.
Additionally, Nicole Johnson DrPH, MPH, MA ? former Miss America and award-winning diabetes advocate ? has joined the One Drop | Experts Advisory Board.
Lastly, One Drop will present the detailed findings of several clinical studies at this year's American Diabetes Association® 77th Scientific Sessions. These findings demonstrate the powerful clinical effectiveness of the One Drop platform at reducing A1C and improving blood glucose levels.
One Drop has significantly expanded its accessibility features. One Drop adapted Amazon Alexa voice technology with the One Drop | Mobile app to create a quick and seamless data entry, tracking, and reporting experience for people with diabetes and their caregivers. Through integration of Amazon Alexa voice technology with One Drop | Mobile, people with diabetes can log blood glucose, food, and physical activity throughout the day and receive data summaries of those records without ever having to open the app or manually enter data. Additionally, caregivers in separate locations can access these same data summaries just by asking Alexa (e.g., "Alexa, did mom take her medication today?"). One Drop will continue to expand the Alexa feature set and capabilities to facilitate communication between One Drop users and their One Drop | Experts, eliminating the need for manual entry in the One Drop | Mobile app. One Drop's Alexa integration is set to launch on June 15th, 2017 and will be available exclusively through the Amazon Alexa Skills store.
One Drop also introduced "Light Mode," a new accessibility feature within the One Drop | Mobile app designed to improve readability for the visually impaired.
"Accessibility is a foundational value at One Drop," said Jeff Dachis, CEO and Founder of One Drop. "Now, with new voice and alternative visual interfaces, we are extending our commitment to accessible care with features and programs that allow access to data-driven diabetes care for those with vision challenges, advanced neuropathy, or limited dexterity/mobility, the elderly, caregivers, as well as those challenged by the visual/tactile interfaces associated with smartphones."
"We are a group of people with diabetes designing products and services for people with diabetes," said Dachis. "My team's commitment to increasing access, lowering costs, and relentlessly improving the lives of everyone on the planet with diabetes and a smartphone continues by providing access to professional diabetes care and education where and when you need it, affordable diabetes supplies delivered right to your home, and worldwide free access to the world's most seamlessly integrated digital diabetes management experience."

One Drop | Experts: On Track and One Drop | Experts: On Call ? are also available worldwide as standalone subscriptions starting at $11 per month.
Secondly, One Drop officially announced this week that Nicole Johnson DrPH, MPH, MA has joined the One Drop | Experts Advisory Board. Ms. Johnson was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a college student in 1993, and her work moved to the national stage when she was named Miss America 1999.
