One Drop: The data-driven approach to managing diabetes

It helps you help yourself

Over 420 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes and a person dies because of it every six seconds. While the pharma industry mints money from the disease there has been little improvement for patients over the years. This is one of the reasons Jeff Dachis, who was diagnosed with diabetes in 2013, decided to start One Drop.

Dachis likens the company to the Uber or Airbnb of healthcare. Instead of waiting for the healthcare sector to help you, you can help yourself using the app. Read more about One Drop and Dachis in this article in New Atlas.
