Glooko is launching the MeterSync Blue to allow patients to connect any of more than 30 popular blood glucose meters to the Glooko platform on Android or Apple devices via Bluetooth. Compared to the company’s current MeterSync cable, the new product doesn’t need a physical connection to work.
According to Glooko, the new product along with their diabetes management platform provides health systems and payers with the ability to more cost-effectively enroll diabetes patients into remote monitoring programs without the need for patients to switch to costly, wireless-enabled, blood glucose meters developed specifically for telemedicine. Instead, health systems and payer groups can leverage the tens of millions of meters already deployed to patients worldwide.
Glooko facilitates remote monitoring with the Glooko Population Tracker, which delivers pattern recognition algorithms and flags for care managers to easily identify patients experiencing hyperglycemic (high blood glucose) or hypoglycemic (low blood glucose) events in between clinic visits. The system can also deliver more real-time reminders and recommendations to patients with diabetes.
