WellDoc Inc., a digital health company based in Columbia, has a deal with another digital health firm to work together on an offering for people who have Type 2 diabetes.

The company is teaming up with Voluntis, of Massachusetts with an aim of combining their digital assistants into a holistic diabetes management solution.

WellDoc is the developer of BlueStar, a digital coaching platform which can help reduce hemoglobin A1C levels in patients with Type 2 diabetes. Voluntis created Insulia, a digital assistant for people using basal insulin to treat Type 3 diabetes. It provides basal dose recommendations and lets health care teams monitor progress remotely.

The companies are working on a combined product offering, and expect to begin to talk with health systems and health plans about it as soon as the late part of the first quarter.
