Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) combined AI and diabetes experts to develop a smartphone app to help manage blood sugar levels.
OHSU biomedical engineer Peter Jacobs and OHSU endocrinologist Dr. Leah Wilson lead this project. They plan to organize a randomized clinical trial to evaluate an enhanced app used in concert with diabetes education specialists. The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust awarded the university more than $4.3 million to support the work.
The researchers developed the DailyDose app for people managing type 1 diabetes with multiple daily insulin injections. It uses an AI algorithm to evaluate blood sugar data, identify trends and recommend steps to keep glucose in range.
