Glooko, Inc has released a new version of its Glooko Diabetes Management System, having received FDA clearance for the product recently.
A combination of an iOS app and a web dashboard, the system provides diabetics with a direct way of syncing their glucose readings from compatible glucometers and sharing that information with their doctors. Readings are stored on the cloud and physicians are provided access to check up on patients from anywhere.
More details from Glooko:
The new Glooko System is designed to both improve diabetes outcomes and lower costs by making it easier for patients to collect, view and share their glucose data with their diabetes support team. The System leverages a mobile-based application to enable users to extract data from 19 popular glucose meters onto their iOS device, creating simple to read and informative analyses for patients and professionals. The information is now accessible, annotatable, and shareable. The cloud platform allows the glucose data to be presented and shared through a web dashboard or as a printed report.
Within the app, patients can easily annotate their blood glucose data with key factors such as food, medication and activity. The Glooko app contains a built-in food database that contains nutritional data for over 200,000 foods, allowing users to automatically log the carb content of their meals. The application also contains graphs that allow patients to better visualize blood glucose data by reviewing readings by time of day, day of week, and by date in addition to recording statistics on readings below, within, or above the targeted glucose range. These new capabilities give providers and their patients a comprehensive way to evaluate blood glucose readings over time so they can create therapy adjustments related to insulin, medication, diet and exercise.
