JDRF BOOST

FOR OPEN

PROTOCOL

The new Accu-Chek website is designed to support people with diabetes using AccuChek products

to live well. As well as all the product information you could ever need,

the interactive website includes tips on managing diabetes on a day-to-day basis. Topics

include travel nutrition, blood glucose monitoring and driving. You can upload your blood

test results from Accu-Chek blood test systems in order to assess patterns and potentially

make adjustments to your control. As the website says, 'Numbers are not enough. It's

what you do with them that counts.' It just takes a moment to register, then you'll have

access to members-only information, other resources as well as offers designed to make

living with diabetes easier. The site also makes it easy for registered customers to order

batteries and accessories for their Accu-Chek products. www.accu-chek.co.uk

ACCU-CHEK THIS OUT!

JDRF (USA) has announced a new

initiative to help pave the way for 'open

protocol' automated insulin delivery

systems, also known as artificial pancreas

(AP) technology. The initiative is intended

to encourage manufacturers to give

users greater control over their insulin

delivery devices. JDRF will be providing

funding, as well as support with regards

to regulatory and liability hurdles.

JDRF's Chief Mission Officer Aaron

Kowalski, Ph.D explains, "The purpose of

this is to support innovation and enable

people with Type 1 diabetes to use an

open-protocol approach safely." Open

protocol includes undertakings such as

Nightscout (and is sometimes referred to

as hacking). He says, "We need to ensure

the regulatory pathway is clear, and we

will work with industry stakeholders to

make devices compatible. By making

this approach more accessible to a wider

group of people with diabetes, users of

insulin delivery devices will be able to

manage their blood glucose levels better,

and in a way that works best for them."

SPIRITED WIN

Spirit Healthcare, which offers various

blood glucose meters and educational

programmes within the diabetes arena,

has been announced as one of the UK

winners in the 2017 ACQ Global Awards

which honour the leading deal teams,

firms and professionals whose activities

The ACQ Global Awards' objective is

to gather quantitative and qualitative

information from and about the gamut of

industry sectors to be able to give a set

of "Best of" awards and to empower end

users to make smarter, more confident

decisions. Entrants were scored on votes

received for professionalism; experience;

value for money; and responsiveness.

Chris Barker, CEO, Spirit Healthcare

have been recognised by industry peers

for our business model and corporate

values. Spirit Healthcare aims to make

the UK's population healthier and happier,

and our collaborative approach to

working in partnership with patients and

NHS healthcare organisations is our core

underpinning ethos."
