SANTA ROSA, Calif., Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- To manage a complex condition like diabetes, it's critical to get everyone in the entire circle of care on the same page: patients, their friends and families, physicians, diabetes educators, health plans, and more. So Ascensia Diabetes Care, a leading provider of blood glucose monitoring systems (BGMS) chose VisiQuate, a leading healthcare analytics company, to partner with them on their digital diabetes management platform. This will be a key element of their strategy to expand beyond blood glucose monitoring and provide holistic diabetes management solutions.
The overall solution will provide integration with Ascensia's existing devices and digital diabetes solutions to enable it to capture data from patients who have consented to provide their information. The platform will then provide analytics for contracted health plan clients, analytics and engagement for involved providers, and internal analytics to support Ascensia's business operations. It will also include a diabetes educator platform.
"The future of diabetes management is more than just using devices and medications. Collecting and analyzing data to provide actionable personalized management recommendations will be critical to improving the health and lives of people with diabetes. We believe in the importance of building a robust data platform that can enable us to capture data and offer management solutions for patients, physicians and health plans," explained Martin Gerber, Global Head of Innovation, Ascensia Diabetes Care. "We looked at a great number of patient-centric solutions in this space and saw that VisiQuate's HealthMobile.D solution and data platform was the best option to support our data strategy. We are excited to be working with a market leader in this field to implement this new platform for our business and offer a new data driven option for people with diabetes."
