GlucoMe and DiaMan Announce the Market Launch of GlucoMe's Digital Diabetes Care Solution in Central America

YARKONA, Israel and OSLO, Norway, April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital diabetes platform provider GlucoMe and Norwegian electronic medical record (EMR) company DiaMan AS announced today the market launch of the GlucoMe digital diabetes care solution in Central America. GlucoMe's solution will initially be introduced in Guatemala, Panama and Dominican Republic, thereafter in, Costa Rica and Nicaragua and then followed by the rest of Central America. Approximately 7 million people or 8 percent of the adult population in the Central American region have diabetes.

Under the terms of the accord, GlucoMe will integrate its digital diabetes care solution with DiaMan's diabetes-tailored EMR software. GlucoMe's solution will include its full suite of products including the wireless blood glucose monitor, mobile App and Digital Diabetes Clinic software for healthcare professionals. Through its existing channels, DiaMan will lead distribution throughout Central America. DiaMan expects to reach a total of 70,000 users in two to three years in the Central American countries, working closely with hospitals and other institutions in the region.

DiaMan CEO Mr. Ove T. Aasen said, "We are very enthusiastic to partner with GlucoMe in Central America, where there is a huge unmet need for diabetes care and an interest in filling this need using innovative solutions like GlucoMe's. Their platform perfectly complements our diabetes-related electronic medical records solution. The initial response to the GlucoMe solution has been extremely positive. We are already filling the first purchase order and anticipate many more to come."

"The agreement with DiaMan is latest step in our world rollout of the GlucoMe digital diabetes management solution. Today's news follows our introduction of the solution in India in partnership with Apollo Sugar. We are delighted to work with DiaMan and all of our valued partners to help further modernize the treatment of diabetes worldwide," said GlucoMe CEO Mr. Yiftah Ben-Aharon.

The GlucoMe solution simplifies diabetes management and lessens the burden of diabetes monitoring for medical teams and patients. It makes it easier for diabetes clinics to provide more efficient and when necessary, immediate care, by enabling digital and/or face-to-face intervention for the right patients at the right time, based on real-time information, timely alerts and continuous communication. GlucoMe's solution helps medical teams treat up to 10X more patients than using standard face-to-face meetings. For patients, it reinforces vital self-care behavior, with less overhead and greater insights. 

"We are delighted to introduce GlucoMe's digital diabetes care solution to Central America with our valued partner DiaMan. Our services complement each other to fill a vast and clearly unmet need in this region as well as create a win-win situation for all – patient, physician and management alike," said Mr. Ofer Asif, EVP Sales & Business Development at GlucoMe.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.
