Insulet (NSDQ:PODD) touted the full market launch of the Omnipod Display and Omnipod View apps for people using the company’s Omnipod Dash system.
The Display app enables users to display data from their Personal Diabetes Manager device onto their smartphones. The View app gives caregivers and family members the option to remotely monitor Omnipod Dash system data, according to Insulet.
Both apps are available to download via the iOS app store.
“The Omnipod Dash mobile apps and widget capability are the first of their kind when it comes to monitoring insulin pump data and we are excited to bring this combined view of insulin delivery and Dexcom CGM data to our users,” chief commercial officer Bret Christensen said in prepared remarks. “People look at their mobile phone countless times throughout the day and now Omnipod Dash users are able to conveniently and discreetly check their diabetes status or that of their loved ones’, in order to stay well-informed, help make diabetes management decisions, and make diabetes a smaller part of life.”
Earlier this week, Insulet reported its second-quarter financial results. The company missed the consensus estimates on Wall Street, but raised its outlook for the rest of the year.
Insulet posted profits of $1.4 million or $0.02 per share, on sales of $177.1 million for the three months ended June 30, for a bottom-line gain of 182% and sales growth of 42.5% compared with the same time last year.
