Boehringer and Lilly Introduce Online Program for Adult Type 2s

Boehringer and Lilly Introduce Online Program for Adult Type 2s

Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and Eli Lilly and Company have introduced My Well Planner, a new online program offering customized educational content to help adults with type 2 diabetes make simple lifestyle changes to improve their health. Sample topics include general information about type 2 diabetes, better eating habits, building physical activity into daily life, taking medication, and communication strategies.

My Well Planner is designed to address the emotional barriers that people with type 2 diabetes face every day. Modeled on a behavioral change approach, it offers personalized content that adjusts as patients use it over time. The program helps adults with type 2 diabetes and their healthcare providers work together to set small lifestyle goals at their own pace, building toward bigger goals in the future. 

People with type 2 diabetes can register and create their own My Well Planner account at www.mywellplannerinfo.com. Once enrolled in the program, patients are asked to take a self-assessment to determine their motivation levels. The program delivers tailored tips based on the evaluation results to help patients take an active role in their condition and maintain healthy behaviors over time. It also creates progress reports that they can print out and discuss with their healthcare providers during visits.

According to Francine Cabrera, RN, CDE, WOCN, a Philadelphia-based nurse and diabetes educator, “It’s not easy to break old habits and create healthier ones. What sets My Well Planner apart is its personalized content based on a graduated approach to help patients build goals and confidence to make healthy life changes.”
