Diabetes is one of the fastest growing and most expensive diseases in America, affecting nearly 26 million people. Managing a patient population of this size requires a truly connected "community of health” that not only involves regular monitoring by a care team, but also engages patients in self-management using various devices and online tools. And it requires overcoming many challenges to get the resulting patient-produced data integrated with the people, processes and technologies of the overall care system.

We know it takes more than buying technology, but how does it all come together to improve the quality of care? Join our panel of experts as they discuss:

• What are the top issues to address and what will it take to address them?
• Who needs to be at the table and what they need to do in order to meet these challenges
• Does the patient have a seat at the table - and if so, how would it make a difference?
• What has to happen to turn the data actionable? Where are we today and where are we headed?
