The virtual clinic Onduo has expanded the reach of its platform into multiple chronic conditions, with new personal coaching programs for Type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, weight loss, high blood pressure and mental wellness.

The digital programs include links to preventive care, plus personally tailored information on habits that could help improve specific maladies and overall health, as chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension can often overlap.

Using predictive analytics programs developed by Verily, Google’s life science-focused corporate sibling, Onduo gathers patient data from multiple streams such as wearable devices and pharmacy claims. It can then assign personalized messaging, prompt a review of their medications, or schedule users for a telemedicine visit.

Last year, Onduo presented research from three studies showing its coaching and monitoring platforms helped people with Type 2 diabetes better control their blood sugar while also avoiding emotional distress.
One real-world study showed that participants with Type 2 diabetes demonstrated improvements in A1c levels regardless of whether they used a continuous blood sugar monitor.
