Study Ties Significant Cost Reductions to Lower Healthcare Utilization for Dario Users

The new research data, presented by Sanofi at the American Diabetes Association 83rd Scientific Sessions (the "Scientific Sessions"), examined associated claims for Dario users and non-users to determine the potential savings for patients living with Type 2 diabetes.

The study used an exact match and propensity-score matched non-user cohort that included access to usual care in a cohort of 2,445 Dario users and 7,334 matched non-users. Cost-to-charge ratios were used to determine potential paid savings in costs of care across both inpatient and outpatient care. The study found Dario users incurred a total of $5,077 less in estimated payer charges over the course of a year compared to non-Dario users.

"Digital health historically lacks the rigorous research needed to help payers assess value, and our partners at Sanofi are charting a new standard with this robust, arms-length analysis of Dario user data," said Omar Manejwala, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Dario. "We are incredibly proud to share this new data resulting from a rigorous well matched study design to offer the credible evidence of cost savings our partners demand."

"Our studies have shown not only the effectiveness and safety of a digital health intervention, but also how this can save spending for health systems," said Felix Lee, Medical Head of Digital Healthcare, Sanofi US. "Digital health has the potential to address gaps in chronic care in addition to usual pharmaceutical care to improve clinical and economic outcomes and we are excited to be innovating in how best to showcase these benefits."
