The former president of 23andMe joins diabetes start-up Livongo

"The idea is to reduce strain on the health-care system," said Page, who left 23andMe earlier this year. The company presented data at the American Diabetes Association's annual meeting to demonstrate that it saved $83 per participant per month on health-care costs, which was 5.8 percent lower than those not enrolled in its program.

Livongo works with payers, such as self-insured employers like Pepsi and FedEx, that are looking for ways to reduce health costs, and sells its diabetes management program directly to consumers for $49.99 per month.

Some 30 million people in the U.S. have diabetes.

The company is looking to expand into monitoring other chronic conditions, including hypertension and depression.

Livongo CEO Glen Tullman left his role as the chief executive officer for Allscripts, a multibillion-dollar health IT company, to start Livongo in 2014. Tullman has seen firsthand the challenges of managing chronic ailments as the parent of a son with type 1 diabetes. Since then, Livongo has raised more than $140 million in venture capital financing.
