The management landscape for Diabetes Mellitus (both Type 1 and Type 2) has changed drastically. Innovations in the mobile health technology space have allowed patients with diabetes to have improved glycemic control with more data available to them and their providers. Clinical trials in diabetes have also improved data capture, safety and accessibility using new mobile health platforms, specifically hybrid and virtual trial technology.

This educational webinar will provide an overview of the mobile health technology space, highlighting current innovations and challenges. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Barry Goldstein following presentations by Dr. Manasi Jaiman and Dr. Bola Oyegunwa.
