NEW YORK, Dec. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DarioHealth Corp. (Nasdaq: DRIO), a pioneer in the global digital therapeutics (DTx) market, announced today that the Company has entered into an agreement to provide its remote patient monitoring (RPM) solution to Presbyterian Medical Services, one of the largest integrated healthcare systems in the State of New Mexico, effective January 1, 2021. The selection of DarioHealth followed a rigorous request for proposal (RFP) process in which Dario's RPM solution was evaluated alongside several other digital therapeutics platforms.
The partnership between Dario and Presbyterian Medical Services will provide patients living with chronic conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension, access to Dario's next-generation AI-powered digital therapeutics tools and quality care that will help them improve their health and enable more frequent and meaningful interactions with their healthcare providers.
"We are very pleased to partner with Presbyterian Medical Services in their mission to provide the best possible care to their patients. Adding Dario's RPM solution with personalized digital journeys can engage patients and help them manage their chronic conditions while giving providers tools that enable remote patient monitoring, greater data, and interaction with their patients. Dario's solution has demonstrated that it can assist patients in achieving improved health outcomes," stated Rick Anderson, President and General Manager of North America. "With healthcare resources stretched thin across the country, and many patients unwilling to leave their homes due to COVID-19, we believe that Dario's RPM is the ideal solution to help Presbyterian Medical Services provide quality care to their patients during these challenging times by providing support when and where they need it."
"At Presbyterian Medical Services, our mission is to improve the health and lives of an economically and socially diverse patient population across New Mexico. The management of prevalent chronic conditions, most notably diabetes, is a critical component of that effort," stated Steven Hansen, CEO. "We are excited to join forces with DarioHealth to give our affiliated practitioners the tools necessary to drive sustainable change, activate health equity goals, and make a positive impact in the communities we serve. We evaluated several RPM offerings and concluded that Dario's superior technology, user experience, and durable behavior change made it the best digital solution for our institution. We look forward to a long and successful partnership."
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
