ASCENSIA DIABETES

CARE

The company's Contour Next One meter

offers a 'second-chance' sampling feature

really is something that we get feedback

on related to testing. Plus the Contour

Diabetes App also has structured testing

feature to help get the most out of blood

glucose testing.

Last year Ascensia Diabetes Care

announced that the Contour Diabetes

app had been updated to enable

seamless integration with Apple Health.

Connectivity between these two apps

means users are able to select to share

blood glucose readings and carbohydrate

data from the Contour Diabetes app with

Apple Health. Once this feature is enabled

by the user, data from the Ascencia's app

will automatically transfer and be visible in

the Health app in its Blood Glucose area.

In addition, users can opt to share data

that has been collected by Apple Health

with the Contour Cloud.

Many people with diabetes are

already using Apple Health as the primary

application to track their health and this

update is designed to make diabetes

management easier by providing users

with the option to automatically transfer

their blood glucose and carbohydrate

data. This upgrade is the result of

feedback from users of the Contour

Diabetes app via App Store reviews and

social media. To pair with Apple Health

search Contour Diabetes app in your

preferred search engine.

Ascensia has also presented clinical

research that demonstrated that use of

the Contour Next One blood glucose

meter in combination with the Contour

Diabetes app can reduce the likelihood of

hypos. The study found that meter-andapp usage for more

than 180 days was

associated with a statistically significant

decrease hypos in users, suggesting that

the system can help them manage their

condition more effectively.

The study examined anonymized

data from 11,341 people with diabetes

from the UK (3,905 people) and Germany

(7,436 people). The meter transmits blood

glucose readings to the app via Bluetooth

technology on a compatible Android or

iOS device. The app analyses readings

received from the meter to identify patterns

and provides personalized guidance for

diabetes self-management based on the

well-researched Information-MotivationBehavioural

Skills (IMB) model of health

behaviour change. The Contour Diabetes

app is available in the Apple App Store

(iOS) and Google Play (Android).
