The company’s blood glucose monitor, which syncs with Dario’s diabetes management app, connects via a headphone jack to a mobile device, helping diabetes patients monitor their blood glucose throughout the day. The app also records carbohydrate intake, insulin use and physical activity.
“When I showed my patients how to use Dario, they immediately got it and I realized that this was going to be a game-changing device,” Dr. Alan Shorr said in prepared remarks.
“The Dario system provides patients with a platform to control their blood sugars in an easy and concise manner. The patient’s sugars and essential data is easy to understand, and patients are coming to the office more informed. My team is able to interpret the data and teach our patients to improve their control of diabetes. This is done in part because Dario simplifies the complexity of diabetes treatment and improves the quality of life for my patients. The device is easy to maintain and does not require carrying multiple items, which is a major plus.”
“We are excited that Dario technology will help us seamlessly incorporate remote blood glucose monitoring into our daily clinical processes, thereby allowing us to actively identify and manage those patients with diabetes that need our guidance in a timely manner,” Dr. Arvind Cavale added. “We hope to demonstrate with this project that clinicians and technology companies can bring high-value services to the management of chronic illnesses such as diabetes.”
“It’s very encouraging to hear from endocrinologists that people with diabetes can get better care with Dario,” DarioHealth chairman & CEO Erez Raphael said. “This is an important step in DarioHealth’s growth and market penetration as we are planning to reach additional users through key opinion leaders and clinics. Partnering with such clinics will allow us to reach users in a faster and a more efficient manner.”
