Episode 28: Diabetes at SXSW

Diabetes made an appearance at the SXSW Interactive Festival last week in a panel called “Smashing ‘One Size Fits All’ Diabetes Care At Last.” Scott Johnson shares his thoughts about and reflections on being part of this panel. Also on the panel were Dr. Justin Wright of Lilly, Kelly Close of the diaTribe Foundation, and Manny Hernandez of Livongo Health.

Medical technology, also referred to as medtech, promises to make massive amounts of data available to the individual about his or her state of health. It might even enable individualized management of chronic conditions like diabetes, moving us away from a one-size-fits-all approach. This is the starting point for this episode where Scott and Corinna touch on the promise of more real-time health data, data overwhelm, the need for training to understand the data, CGMs, patient access, putting people first, and more.
