SWANSEA PILOTS ROCHE

DIABETES CARE PLATFORM

At the end of 2020 as reported by

MedTech News, the Roche Diabetes

Care Platform (RDCP) was launched as a

pilot in Swansea. The platform brings data

on patients' blood glucose levels with a

traffic light system which can highlight

patterns, such as repeated high and low

blood sugar readings. This helps HCPs

to have more focussed and effective

conversations with people about their

diabetes management.

The RDCP's insights are based on

data from various medical devices and

apps used by people with diabetes, so

patterns in high or low sugar levels at

certain times of the day can be quickly

linked to regular activities in their daily

routine. Tools to visualise large sets of

data are commonly used in hospitals

but are found less frequently in pri-mary

care. Interpreting data is an important

part of diabetes management. Improving

diabetes management can help to reduce

the risk of diabetes-related complications.

It has been established that targeted

Free access to

Roche's mySugr Pro

smartphone app

has been extended

until the end of

April to support

patients through

the third wave of

the coronavirus

pandemic. The

mySugr app is free anyway, it's the

Pro version that it is being offered for

free until the end of April. Both help

to enhance remote consultations by

providing easy-to-read reports to share

with HCPs and allows you to store your

diabetes information in one place in

such a way that's easy to understand,

including logging of blood sugar,

meals, and photos; estimated HbA1c;

bolus calculator; and test reminders.

support can improve outcomes for people

with Type 2 diabetes through integrated

personalised diabetes management

(iPDM) using apps such as mySugr, which

gives them access to their health data and

tools to help them better manage their

diabetes. Data from the mySugr mobile

app can easily be shared with the RDCP.

This in-tegration between the RDCP and

mySugr also enables HCPs to view their

patient's blood glucose monitoring data

during consultations, allowing for more

meaningful conversations.

Dr Claire Marriott, medical affairs lead

at Roche Diabetes Care, commented,

"Healthcare has had to adapt to become

more digital over the course of the pandemic. The

RDCP is an important tool and

we hope it will enable HCPs to support

people with diabetes to manage their

own condition more easily, and to do so

remote-ly. We are very proud to support

people with diabetes, who might feel

worried about going to their GP surgeries

for regular check-ups at this time."
