We need to find cost effective treatments to help our patients manage their disease more effectively and to raise the quality of care in our public system. We eagerly embraced a clinical trial with ALRT in order to determine the effectiveness of remote monitoring and other creative technologies that hold the potential to improve outcomes for our patients with chronic diseases."

ALRT's CEO Sidney Chan said: "Our Health-e-Connect System offers a real solution to the diabetes crisis in Latin America. This trial is a key strategic effort by ALRT to facilitate our penetration into emerging markets where the burgeoning diabetes pandemic is overwhelming public healthcare systems."
