Is anyone using Joslin HypoMap App? Are self-management technologies future of diabetes care?

An open question to my peers in the #DOC : I’m wondering if anyone is using the Joslin HypoMap software App?  Is any of the cost covered by healthcare insurance? What are the early results from users?

The app is included in this must read update about translational technologies from the Joslin Diabetes Center :

JITT doesn’t plan to introduce any new technology to the market themselves. “We are not technology,” says Harry Mitchell, executive director of JITT. “We are the know-how. We are the clinical solutions that strive to make technology better to improve the lives of people with diabetes.”  A nationwide shortage of endocrinologists, diabetes nurse educators, and adult diabetes care centers has burdened the healthcare system and impacted timely patient care. Howard Wolpert, M.D., director of JITT, believes the future of medicine, particularly diabetes care, must begin with self-management technologies.
