Associated personal, financial, and societal costs of a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus impacted over 22 million Americans at a cost of over $245 billion in 2012. The project provided evidence-based outcomes that demonstrated improved HbA1c levels in the intervention group and positive feedback on diabetes related text messages. Ongoing opportunities are available to expand text messaging within the physician network; the potential for replication studies; and the feasibility and effectiveness of text messaging for improving engagement in managing people with T2DM health are also findings within the study.
