  • medication lists and health data (blood pressure readings, body mass index [BMI], A1C)
  • seven-day food diary
  • automatic SVRs sent to care partners once, monthly or every three months. (EHR integration is also available depending on the platform your practice uses.)

How Does the BlueStar App Benefit My Patients?

BlueStar can help users establish healthy eating patterns with:

  • diabetes-friendly recipes
  • food recognition software, which logs a meal after users upload a photo of it
  • interactive food diary
  • meal planning and grocery lists
  • restaurant menu guides
  • real-time AI coaching to help users select foods that keep their glucose in range
