Roche UK Accu-Chek Instant blood glucose system

Care has been bringing

forward innovative

diabetes technologies

and services for more

than 40 years to support people with

diabetes and those at risk to achieve

more time in their target ranges and

experience relief from the demands

of having to submit to daily therapy

routines. It has a long and trusted

heritage in blood glucose monitoring.

Being a global leader in integrated

Personalised Diabetes Management

(iPDM), Roche Diabetes Care collaborates

with thought leaders around the globe to

transform and advance care provision and

foster sustainable care structures. Under

the brands RocheDiabetes, Accu-Chek

and mySugr, Roche Diabetes Care unites

with its partners to create patient-centred

value globally by acting locally.

The point of Roche's Diabetes Care

Platform (RDCP) is to improve collaboration

between people with diabetes (PWDs)

and their healthcare professional teams

(HCPs), with a view to providing greater

personalisation back to each individual

diabetic. The tagline in Roche's fun new

videos on all its technologies says, 'doing

now what patients need next'.

Instant access

As part of this strategy, the company is

introducing a new blood glucose meter

(BGM) to its existing Accu-Chek range.

Called the Accu-Chek Instant, it wirelessly

connects with Roche's smartphone

mySugr app, which sends information via

the cloud directly to the RDCP installed in

GP surgeries and hospital clinics where

it can be accessed by HCPs. At the

moment, there are a few pilot schemes

of the platform taking place in the UK,

as each country requires certain local

adaptations, which will be made following

feedback from the pilot studies.

Feedback is also the name of the

game when it comes to improving

anyone's diabetes care. With the new

meter, a person is involved in a 'feedback

loop.' The person with diabetes does a

test, the result goes to the mySugr app

wirelessly, information then goes directly

via the cloud to the RDCP, where it can

be accessed by HCPs who can then

give personalised feedback to that user.

Integration helps ensure less time is being

spent on capturing or recording data, to

allow more time to be spent on using

the data in meaningful conversations

between HCPs and patients, in order to

personalise care and improve diabetes

management.

The Accu-Chek Instant joins other

meters in the Accu-Chek range: the

Mobile, Performa, Aviva and Aviva Expert.

The company also has resources to help

people understand structured blood

glucose monitoring. The newest meter

will initially be available from HCPs, with

a view to possibly being in high street

pharmacies by the end of the year for

anyone who wants to buy one.
