Independence builds confidence, which improves attitude, which further improves the diabetes.

One Million Solutions in Health provides an update on research about how Attitudes and Diabetes Management impact each other via a webinar with Stacy Daughn, PsyD, CAP, Clinical Psychologist, and Gerene Schmidt, MA BSPHN RN, President/Co-Founder of Choices & Patterns Inc.

The key to a healthy life with diabetes is to prevent systemic complications that result from patterns of frequent high, low and uncontrolled wide swings in blood sugars. Complications are rapid in onset in all types of diabetes and often require costly acute care. Stacy Daughn reviews the impact of one's attitude on their diabetes, and also looks at how having diabetes affects one's attitude.

Gerene Schmidt covers the Diabetes Success App which can achieve up to a 25% reduction in spiraling costs for diabetes care. In contrast with other diabetes Apps the Diabetes Success App provides more information in a usable, action-oriented way. People cannot change or modify what they do not see. Therefore, seeing patterns in their behavior, which are effected by their choices, helps individuals course-correct on their own. This independence builds confidence, which improves attitude, which further improves the diabetes.

Choices & Patterns Inc., uniquely offers the most innovative solution that provides real-time information to immediately alert and guide the person with diabetes to see, identify and quickly respond. This enables the person to resolve high and low blood sugar patterns quickly.

Physicians benefit when patients share their patterns, supporting compliance with Meaningful Use Stage 2 and ICD-10 requirements to proactively manage patients.
