Glooko, Inc. Key Developments

Glooko, Inc. Launches Diabetes Management System for Android

Glooko, Inc. announced that Android Compatible System Cleared by FDA and App Available in the Google Play Store, Device available on Amazon. By adding support for the Android mobile operating system, Glooko now provides a diabetes management platform that is accessible to tens of millions of people with diabetes. According to a recent report by comScore on key trends in the smartphone industry, Android is ranked as the number one smartphone platform with 52% market share in the US and 65% in Europe. With the addition of Android support, Glooko enables people with diabetes to easily collect, view and share their blood glucose readings on many Android phones including Samsung, HTC and LG models. For professionals and disease management staffs, the Glooko diabetes management system offers the analytical tools that can enable consistent care across their diabetes patients along with an improved ability to advise their patients remotely. By using Glooko, health systems aim to create a higher level of adherence to treatment plans among their diabetes population. The Glooko Diabetes Management System for Android runs on devices using the Android operating system, including phones such as the Samsung Galaxy SIII and S4. Using Glooko’s mobile application, these devices can currently download glucose data from dozens of compatible meters, including but not limited to Roche’s ACCU-CHEK® Aviva (Black), Abbott’s FreeStyle Lite®, and Lifescan’s OneTouch® Ultra®2, OneTouch® UltraLink®, and a variety of Nipro meters. Glooko expects to add even more devices soon, including additional glucose meters and eventually insulin pumps.

Glooko Updates its Mobile Diabetes Management Platform

Glooko unveiled a new version of its Glooko Diabetes Management System that goes beyond data entry. Version 2.0 of the company's app is designed to enable diabetics and their doctors to collect and chart that data and measure it against daily nutrition and exercise trends. In addition, through the re-launched ProConnect cloud-based portal, diabetics can share their data with selected physicians, who in turn use that data to develop a daily health management plan. That, in essence, sums up the evolution of the mHealth industry: No longer content with just recording data in real time, it's now taking that accumulated data and putting it to use. With Glooko, this means gathering up a diabetic's daily blood glucose readings to track those numbers over time, then adding in factors such as food consumed and exercise.

Glooko, Inc Releases New Version of Glooko Diabetes Management System

Glooko, Inc. has released a new version of its Glooko Diabetes Management System, having received FDA clearance for the product recently. A combination of an iOS app and a web dashboard, the system provides diabetics with a direct way of syncing their glucose readings from compatible glucometers and sharing that information with their doctors. Readings are stored on the cloud and physicians are provided access to check up on patients from anywhere. The new Glooko System is designed to both improve diabetes outcomes and lower costs by making it easier for patients to collect, view and share their glucose data with their diabetes support team. The System leverages a mobile-based application to enable users to extract data from 19 popular glucose meters onto their iOS device, creating simple to read and informative analyses for patients and professionals. The information is now accessible, annotatable, and shareable. The cloud platform allows the glucose data to be presented and shared through a web dashboard or as a printed report. Within the app, patients can easily annotate their blood glucose data with key factors such as food, medication and activity. The Glooko app contains a built-in food database that contains nutritional data for over 200,000 foods, allowing users to automatically log the carb content of their meals. The application also contains graphs that allow patients to better visualize blood glucose data by reviewing readings by time of day, day of week, and by date in addition to recording statistics on readings below, within, or above the targeted glucose range. These new capabilities give providers and their patients a comprehensive way to evaluate blood glucose readings over time so they can create therapy adjustments related to insulin, medication, diet and exercise.
