Insulet Corporation Launches a First of its Kind Advocacy Website

Insulet Corporation, the leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its Omnipod DASH™ Insulin Management System, has launched a first of its kind website, www.advocacyforaccess.com, intended to educate and mobilize the diabetes community to drive affordable access to the latest, best and most effective insulin management technology. This unique, interactive resource is meant to empower people with diabetes, caregivers, supporters and healthcare professionals to become advocates by providing them with tips, helpful tools, customizable templates and testimonials from others who have successfully navigated what can be an overwhelming and frustrating advocacy process.

Insulet understands that diabetes is a complex and challenging disease, the management of which involves many factors and variables. While this awareness has shaped and driven improvements in pump design, it also informs Insulet’s philosophy of striving to lessen the daily burden of diabetes. When a person with diabetes has been denied affordable access to the insulin pump of their choice, that burden is increased.

The www.advocacyforaccess.com website provides the diabetes community with a valuable time saving solution when initiating the advocacy process. Whether individuals, caregivers, supporters or healthcare professionals, all can easily navigate to take action and, with very little effort, forward an e-mail to their or their patient’s insurance provider, in real time. The www.advocacyforaccess.com website also offers an option to put it in writing and download a template that can be copied into a personal e-mail or letter and even the ability to tweet their call to action. Video testimonials from individuals and caregivers who share experiences common to the diabetes community reinforce the idea that advocacy requires persistence but can be successful.

Insulet believes all people with diabetes and their healthcare professionals should determine the diabetes management options that best meet their individual needs. Everyone living with diabetes should have affordable access to the care, treatments, tools, and information needed to successfully manage their diabetes, stay healthy and achieve positive outcomes. The www.advocacyforaccess.com website arms the diabetes community to successfully advocate for their health and achieve a better quality of life.

Insulet is a 2020 National Strategic Partner of DiabetesSisters. DiabetesSisters shares information they provide that is useful to our community; however, the relationship does not influence the decisions or opinions of DiabetesSisters, its governing board or staff.
