A shortage of endocrinologists, combined with infrequent doctor visits, has made the gap in diabetes care extensive. Due to their convenient locations and ability to service routine healthcare needs (such as flu vaccinations), pharmacies are already responding to this need by piloting chronic care management programs for people with diabetes.

Beginning mid-2020, Trividia Health and Mellitus Health will provide customized solutions to more than 48,000 pharmacies and clinics that co-brand Trividia’s TRUE METRIX® brand of diabetes management products to maximize the effectiveness, affordability, and convenience of these programs.

“Our goal is to bring the best technology to market and at the same time, be affordable to the person with diabetes and accessible to everyone,” said Scott Verner, CEO and President of Trividia Health. “Our customers in retail chains and independent pharmacies have challenged Trividia Health to deliver solutions that maximize the accessibility of in store clinics and take advantage of the high value consulting capabilities that community pharmacists bring to patients. The partnership with Mellitus Health and the deployment of our new solution will fill a need in the market and improve the quality of care for people with diabetes.”

Trividia Health and Mellitus Health’s joint solutions will integrate Mellitus Health’s FDA cleared Insulin Insights® software, which analyzes a patient’s glucose meter data and generates an insulin dosing recommendation for their health care professional.

We are pleased to partner with Trividia Health as they have broad product distribution at all of the major pharmacy retailers.”
