The application is a cross-platform tool that enables a doctor or healthcare professional to implement a personalised dose plan via a website portal. The application is built for people with Type 2 Diabetes who are prescribed insulin to manage their blood sugar levels. The artificial intelligence in the application recommends dose change for people taking once-daily long-acting basal insulin, based on their daily fasting blood sugar levels.My Dose Coach app is available for use by both physicians and people with Diabetes. To use the app, the user feeds his or her blood sugar reading on their end. These blood sugar readings can be seen by the physician for review and revision of insulin dosage.The app also allows the physician to provide additional information, tips, instructions or advice to provide effective guidance to the person.My Dose Coach is equipped for use in people with Type 2 Diabetes who are above 18 years of age and are prescribed once-daily doses of basal insulin. The app is not recommended for use in people with Type 1 Diabetes. The app currently does not provide the option of rapid-acting insulin or more general bolus or premix injections.
