Company Summary

dbaza health developed and clinically validated a patient onboarding platform for managing and reducing the costs of chronic diseases like diabetes. Diabetes affects 29 million Americans. It requires intensive self-care and management to avoid complications. When unmanaged, diabetes can cost more than $100,000, or 20 times more per year due to long-term complications. And yet, less than 7% of people with diabetes are actively involved in self-management of their condition.

Why is that? Pro-active self-management requires knowledge, skills and self-confidence. Traditional face-to-face programs fail to reach people with diabetes. Only one out of five enrolled in such programs completes them. dbaza health developed and clinically validated digital engagement and education programs that have a completion rate of 75%.

What do we do differently? We make it personal, relevant to people's lives, and effortless. Our software and mobile solution create a personal roadmap to master self-care. In a primary care office, a patient takes a short assessment using standard validated questionnaires. Combining the patient’s answers with clinical, psychological and socioeconomic data, we create a personal roadmap to build diabetes knowledge and skills for self-management. Between doctor’s visits, through our proprietary software platform, the patient gets personalized tasks and micro tutorials to build and reinforce healthy habits. The patient’s doctor can track progress and even send kudos to encourage the patient. The personal roadmap does not stay static; it adapts to the patient’s progress or digress, and keeps the patient on track.

Why does our solution matter? One in ten people in the US has diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, almost 2M are diagnosed each year. We are tapping into those people with diabetes who are not engaged by traditional means. We estimate the U.S. market for our solution is $3B.

Our SaaS mobile solution supports patients in building long-lasting self-management habits. For payers and self-insured employers, dbaza health provides comprehensive patient profiles and tailors the disease management interventions to optimize the use of healthcare resources while reducing the costs of chronic diseases.
