a growing
need to change


During the next 60 seconds, one adult will be diagnosed with heart disease, another three with diabetes. One in every two adults, or 133 million Americans, has one or more chronic conditions.1 About 86% of healthcare spending is used to treat chronic diseases.2 

With no real-time visibility and accountability, most patients diagnosed with chronic illnesses don’t understand the importance of managing their health until they are in the emergency room.

a focus on changing behaviors

With no real-time visibility and accountability, most patients diagnosed with chronic illnesses don’t understand the importance of managing their health until they are in an emergency.

As part of the program, members receive Genie (Tula’s smart glucometer), a companion smartwatch and diabetes testing supplies. Everything in the program is automatic. The only thing members need to do is check their levels. Their results are immediately sent to Tula wirelessly.

Members can go online at any time to view their readings, set goals and even share information with their physician or family members.

measurable results

When members engage and properly manage their health, they lower their healthcare costs and experience better outcomes. Not only can proper management affect short-term costs by as much as 20-30%, but it can also alter the course of future healthcare costs.4 Studies show that proper testing and management of diabetes on a daily basis produces the following long-term effects:
