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.
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.
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.
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.”
- Is built in WordPress, a popular content management system
- Is designed and built to be mobile-friendly
