Text 2 Move: Diabetes Care
Physical activity can help patients with type 2 diabetes better self-manage their condition, improve quality of life and health outcomes, which in turn reduces health care costs. Text 2 Move is a dynamic messaging program for people with type 2 diabetes, designed to increase physical activity and lower HbA1c levels (the clinical measure for blood sugar control).
This randomized clinical trial combines objective activity data (collected via an activity tracker), a patient's stage of behavior change (measured via personalized text messages) and the practice location to deliver highly targeted, personalized text messages.
This study was funded by the McKesson Foundation’s Mobilizing for Health initiative.
