Digital Healthcare Provider Selects Cellular-Enabled iGlucose Monitor to Enhance Its Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Program
Smart Meter, the leader in cellular-enabled remote patient monitoring (RPM) data and devices, today announced that Kardio, a digital healthcare-as-a-service provider, has selected its iGlucose® monitor to enhance diabetes management and clinical care in the home for more than 500,000+ senior ethnic patient population including, but not limited with, Korean/Chinese/Vietnamese-born American senior patients. Through this partnership, providers using the Kardio platform will now be able to see their patients' glucose readings in real-time, with no extra steps required from patients.
iGlucose's cellular connectivity with AutoShare™ immediately transmits blood glucose data upon testing, delivering critical high and low readings in real-time to providers. More convenient and easier for patients, results can be viewed immediately by care providers who can react in real-time to adjust diet or medicines, potentially reducing costs and trips to the hospital.
"Our iGlucose monitor fits in seamlessly with Kardio's remarkable community oriented, high-touch approach to its virtual care and home health model," said Casey Pittock, CEO, Smart Meter. "iGlucose simplifies diabetes management for patients and their caregivers, allowing the focus to be put back on the patients, where it should be. We are excited to introduce iGlucose monitoring tools and connectivity to Kardio's providers and patients to enhance the quality care they already offer."
Kardio's all-in-one platform for remote monitoring enables care providers to achieve better health care outcomes for their patients. Kardio's digital health platforms make healthcare more convenient, accessible and affordable for senior citizens.
"We make it our mission to provide a white-glove, quality care experience for our providers and their patients," said Charles Kim, CEO, Kardio. "We are thrilled to partner with Smart Meter to not only take that patient-dedication to the next level, but to also offer providers a tool to increase engagement between visits to reduce hospital readmission rates."
