The International Diabetes Federation Welcomes GlucoMe’s Findings in the Field of Digital Diabetes Care Systems
YARKONA, ISRAEL – NOVEMBER 20, 2019 – GlucoMe, the creators of an innovative digital diabetes platform, announced today that they will present the results of their digital diabetes management project at the International Diabetes Federation’s upcoming Congress in December 2019 in South Korea. The study, which was conducted in collaboration with Merck, highlights the added value of GlucoMe’s diabetes solution which helped patients reduce their HbA1c levels in only 12 weeks.
The study to be presented – titled - Digital diabetes care system – observations and insights from a market acceptance evaluation pilot in Vietnam, aimed to assess the clinical outcomes of patients using the GlucoMe digital solution in a Southeast Asian country.
GlucoMe’s CEO, Yiftah Ben-Aharon, commented, “GlucoMe partnered with Merck and together worked closely with several endocrinology clinics and hospitals in Vietnam. The clinics were provided with the GlucoMe app and blood glucose meter and instructed their patients on how to use the system. Data were collected and analyzed centrally.”
“Overall, the pilot was a great success as patients and clinics were able to communicate on a more frequent basis, leading to improved clinical results. Developing countries have a large market potential yet present unique challenges. This pilot study demonstrates that GlucoMe is a viable model for rapid implementation and roll out to additional countries in other emerging markets.”
Dr. Avivit Cahn, of the Diabetes Unit at Hadassah Hebrew University Hospital in Israel, and of one of the co-authors of the study, said, “Adherence to glucose measurements was markedly high with the assistance of GlucoMe’s digital solution, leading to an overall reduction in the average blood glucose levels by 19.5 mg/dl by the end of the study. Moreover, high retention rates of 81% and multiple digital touchpoints between the patients and the health care professionals, led to much satisfaction on both ends with over 95% of the physicians and patients stating they would strongly support the broad usage of the GlucoMe platform.”
GlucoMe is a digital diabetes management solution that effectively and efficiently streamlines the disease management process for patients and the entire healthcare system, including health care providers, supporting medical teams, insurers, tele-medicine, and remote care providers.
