We have all used the phrase “if you build it, they will come,” and when it comes to glucose monitoring systems and interconnectivity, it seems that every manufacturer has a belief that this is true. When Steve and Joy were at the recent ADA Scientific Sessions there were over 20 companies offering these systems, linking a monitor, the cloud, caregivers and providers to improve diabetes care.
The one failure point for every one of these systems is the time and effort that medical professionals have to take in order to use the information in their day to day practice. Our publisher, Steve Freed, sat down with Kimberly Ward from Roche Diabetes Care, to find out how they are making it easy for medical professionals to use their integrated system. Join us for part 3 of this interview to learn how this idea works.
