Ascensia Diabetes Care announced today the launch of an upgraded version of its Contour Diabetes app in 24 countries.
The latest version of the company’s app includes algorithms to analyze blood glucose data collected from the Contour Next One meter and gives personalized feedback to users.
The upgraded app was recently launched in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, India, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and the U.S., according to Ascensia.
“The My Patterns feature on the new Contour Diabetes app represents a real advance in the use of data for diabetes management. It can uncover patterns in blood glucose readings that patients may not have otherwise recognized and provides tailored reminders that can support improved self-management. This can help people with diabetes stay on track between visits to their doctor and can provide meaningful information for more informed consultations,” CEO Michael Kloss said in prepared remarks.
“We are very excited to be able to bring this new innovation to patients. At Ascensia we are listening to feedback from people with diabetes about their needs, and are continuing to invest in further development of the Contour Diabetes app, so that we can provide solutions that make diabetes self-management better, easier and smarter,” Kloss added.
