The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends diabetes self-management mobile phone apps, implemented in health care systems, to improve blood sugar among patients with type 2 diabetes. These interventions aim to facilitate communication between patients and health care providers and to improve diabetes care. Patients enter data into the apps or use medical equipment that transmits data directly. The apps then provide patients with feedback from health care professionals or automated systems.
