Matrix Group Launches Accurate Insulin Decisions Website to Help People Manage Their Diabetes

June 18, 2013

Matrix Group announces the launch of Accurate Insulin Decisions, a new website to help people with diabetes better manage their disease.

Diabetes affects millions of Americans. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), 25.8 million adults and children in the United States have diabetes—that’s 8.3% of the population. 

Accurate Insulin Decisions, a joint initiative of The Endocrine Society, American Diabetes Association, American Association of Diabetes Educators, American College of Physicians, American Osteopathic Association, American Pharmacists Association and Diabetes Nation, is a program dedicated to helping patients learn to set realistic goals and decide if mealtime insulin can help them achieve those goals, based on their lifestyle and priorities.

To better support individuals living with this disease, The Society and its partners needed to create a website to promote their joint initiative. They also wanted to provide doctors and patients with online resources on mealtime insulin.

THE MATRIX SOLUTION

Matrix Group designed the website as an easy to use resource for patients and doctors. The new website:

  • Features an interactive tool called “Starting and Adjusting Mealtime Insulin.”  This tool helps patients currently taking mealtime insulin and their doctors determine when and how to adjust their dosage. 
  • Is built in Wordpress, a popular content management system, making it easy for staff to update the site and resource library in a timely manner.
  • Is designed and built to be mobile-friendly so that it functions and looks great on desktops and smartphones.
