Ascensia Diabetes Care announced today that it launched its online diabetes management and analytics platform in the U.S.
Parsippany, New Jersey-based Ascensia now offers GlucoContro.online in more than 15 countries around the world. It plans for further expansion, too.
GlucoContro.online supports diabetes management, according to a news release. It enables data-driven care for people using the Ascensia Contour blood glucose monitoring (BGM) portfolio.
People with diabetes can gather, access and analyze their diabetes data online. Additionally, they can seamlessly share it with healthcare providers and caregivers. Ascensia said its platform features intuitiveness and ease of use. It gathers data directly from the Contour diabetes app, Contour cloud or Contour meters via a cable.
Ascensia designed GlucoContro.online with built-in data analytic capabilities. It offers color-coded charts and reports covering metrics like blood glucose, insulin dosing, food consumption and activity levels. Users can share data through a QR code or a one-click invitation. GlucoContro.online features security on the cloud and online.
The company intends to launch its platform with the Contour Next Concierge. The concierge represents Ascensia’s healthcare provider-focused online platform for ordering Contour meters and strips.
Ascensia and SdNcenter collaborated to produce GlucoContro.online. Poland-based SdNcenter specializes in high-tech healthcare and integration solutions for enterprise customers.
“GlucoContro.online gives PWDs and HCPs access to essential data wherever they are, providing them with peace of mind when making decisions both on a daily basis and for long-term treatment plans,” said Chester Lu, Ascensia’s head of BGM digital connected solutions. “The platform is already fully operational across Europe, and we are glad that people in the U.S. are now able to benefit from this intuitive and integrated approach to data-driven diabetes management. GlucoContro.online is just one of the ways in which Ascensia is supporting PWDs and HCPs to simplify life with diabetes.”
