Trinity Health Selects ActiveCare to Support Diabetes Initiatives


November 5, 2015 - Livonia, Mi And Orem, UT

Trinity Health, one of the nation's leading health systems, and ActiveCare, Inc. (OTCQB: ACAR), a supplier of diabetes management products and wellness services for self-insured employers nationwide, today announced a partnership to launch the ActiveCare's diabetes solution in the Michigan market.

"diabetes is a growing epidemic affecting 29 million people in the United States. This 9% of the population attributes to over 30% of all healthcare dollars. It is the leading cause of blindness; increases the chance of a stroke by four fold; increases the likelihood of a heart attack by three times; and is the leading cause of kidney failure. The fortunate part is that if managed a diabetic can live virtually a normal life. The unfortunate part is that only 18% of all diabetics manage their disease," stated James Dalton, Chairman and CEO of ActiveCare.

"ActiveCare's proprietary system of combining 24/7/365 real-time monitoring with live health coaches and engagement and interacting strategies has proven to increase those diabetics managing their disease from 18% to over 40% and lowering the health care costs of a participating diabetic by $3,300 per year. ActiveCare has provided its solution to over 600 companies throughout the U.S. and has proven to lower their overall diabetic healthcare costs by an average of 19%," continued Dalton.

"The launch of the ActiveCare Solution will be coordinated through Trinity Health's local networks of care managers and physicians. This partnership is a real solution that enables meaningful improvement in the health and well-being of the people we serve, while lowering the overall cost of care," states Kevin Sears, Senior Vice President Payer Strategy & Product Development, Trinity Health. "This partnership reinforces Trinity Health's commitment to providing best in class technology and services while reducing the overall cost of care," concluded Kevin Sears.
