Randomized, sham-controlled, multicenter, pragmatic, trial with open-label extension of PHOENIX to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes in a real-world setting BRIGHT - Digital therapeutic Based Randomized Investigation to improve Glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes and residual Hyperglycemia on stable medical Therapy

Primary Objective

To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the digital therapeutic, PHOENIX, to improve HbA1c at 90- and 180-days compared to a control group To evaluate the long-term effectiveness and impact on health care utilization and medication use between study groups in real-world clinical practice over 720 days

Randomized, sham-controlled, multicenter, pragmatic, pivotal trial with open-label extension evaluating the hypothesis that PHOENIX, an investigational digital therapeutic intended to help patients with type 2 diabetes improve their glycemic control, will lower hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) compared to a sham application added to usual care across a broad range of patients in a real-world setting




Type 2 Diabetes Age 18-75 years

Major inclusion criteria 1. Age 18-75 years, inclusive at the time of signing the informed consent 2. Type 2 diabetes on stable anti-diabetic regimen for at least three (3) months 3.
