Telcare, Inc. and Health Dialog Announce Strategic Partnership for Enhanced Diabetes Management

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), diabetes affects 25.8 million Americans. If trends continue, more than a third of the country will have the disease by 2050. In 2012, the estimated total cost of diagnosed diabetes in the United States was $245 billion.

To help patients, physicians, employers, and health plans better address this growing epidemic, Telcare, Inc., the leader in mobile diabetes management solutions, and Health Dialog, a preeminent provider of care management, today announced a strategic partnership. Under terms of the agreement, Telcare’s blood glucose monitor (BGM) will integrate with Health Dialog’s diabetes management program, providing patients living with diabetes and their healthcare providers a more effective way to manage and control the chronic condition.

“The rising prevalence of diabetes and the associated costs require organizations and patients adopt new, accountable measures for controlling diabetes in order to prevent needless complications,” said Dr. Jonathan Javitt, co-founder and CEO of Telcare and the inventor of Telcare’s diabetes monitoring system. “Our technology, coupled with the already-successful Health Dialog diabetes management program, will give organizations an innovative way to treat the condition, and we are looking forward to the partnership,” said John Dwyer, Telcare’s Chairman and co-founder.

Using glucose values transmitted in real-time by the Telcare BGM, patients now have instant access to feedback and coaching for their condition. Caregivers and providers have online access to the same results, allowing them to easily analyze the data and get alerts about potential patient complications. Additionally, patients no longer need to keep a log of their blood glucose readings to convey to their provider. Providers can spend more time during patient appointments focusing on treatment and less time reviewing blood glucose levels.

“Much of healthcare today involves helping people manage conditions, including diabetes, whose outcomes can be greatly influenced by lifestyle or behaviors,” said Robert Mandel, M.D., CEO of Health Dialog. “The addition of Telcare’s cellular-enabled glucose monitoring device to our proven diabetes management program provides our clients with access to real-time blood glucose data to help patients and caregivers monitor and act in a timely manner and, ultimately, change behavior so that they can live healthier, happier, longer lives.”
