Steady Health: Modern diabetes care

Using data and experience to radically improve people’s lives

Lack of training

The data and technology surrounding diabetes have changed tremendously over the last 5 years. Patients now have wearable devices that report 300+ data points per day. That's two orders of magnitude larger than the number of finger sticks we used to have. Yet, many clinicians don’t get any training in how to analyze this data.

Fragmented tools

The toolset that clinicians have at their disposal is fragmented. Pump data is in one place, CGM data in another and everyone is using different apps and systems. And, while the tools are great at telling us where someone is right now, very few can tell you if you’re on a path to improvement.

Outdated model

The traditional care model based on quarterly visits doesn’t make much sense anymore. The A1C test is becoming less relevant as we now have continuous data that can be collected remotely, patients are frequently making adjustments on their own, and, data takes time to understand and interpret.


Introducing: Steady Health

I realized that in order to have an impact on today's care, we have to solve all these challenges. But building software that helped with data analysis for clinics would not be enough, issues with training and the overall care model would remain. Instead, we decided to take a different approach: Steady Health is a completely reimagined care model for diabetes, focused on data and experience, enabled by software.

Our care model consists of two distinct components that together enable better outcomes: Data and Coaching. We’ve built a comprehensive suite of tools that allows us to collect and analyze data from our members and the devices they wear.

Our analysis tool Glue helps our clinicians find insights in food, exercise, medication, and CGM data

A space for improving, together

We deliver full-service diabetes care to our members which means that we also have a location where we provide coaching, yearly physical check-ups and anything else that might require a face to face meeting.

Better care, better life

What does all of this sum up to? Diabetes care that helps members live healthier lives. Care delivered through an experience that fits the needs of a complex condition, while at the same time being more convenient for the member. With Steady, you get a personalized care plan based on actual data, that covers diet, exercise, and medication from a team specialized in diabetes. Whether your goal is to live a long and healthy life or to reduce the stress around diabetes and blood sugar management, we help you get there.

“Steady Health completely changed my perspective. It’s like Diabetes Care Utopia.”

— Aida A.

“Having your team to listen and look at my data has been a game changer. I wish all people with diabetes had access to Steady.”

— Courtney O.

We’re just getting started

We truly believe that the Steady model of care can have a big impact on the 30 million people that are currently diagnosed. But, our mission is larger than that. We also believe that giving care based on data to the 80 million Americans that have with pre-diabetes will improve health and prevent many from full diagnosis. We’re entering a new time where what we eat and how we exercise can be tailored to each and every individual on the planet.

The journey towards personalized nutrition starts now

On behalf of the entire Steady team of engineers, clinicians, investors, members & advisors — thanks. We’re pretty excited about the road ahead.
