Managing Your Diabetes With Telemedicine

More than 22 million people in America alone are affected with diabetes, costing the medical world over $245 billion. Mississippi is currently the second highest state of individuals affected with diabetes. “Republican Gov. Phil Bryant, the University of Mississippi Medical Center and three private technology partners announced a plan to help low-income residents manage their diabetes remotely through the use of Telemedicine. The goal is to help them keep the disease in check and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations while remaining as active and productive as possible.”
