Addressing the Challenges of Diabetes Management through Collaboration
At Ascensia Diabetes Care we do not believe that the challenges of diabetes can be overcome by one company working alone. We need to work with multiple partners from different parts of the diabetes industry if we are to meet the changing needs of people living with diabetes. These collaborations are essential to the development of groundbreaking technologies for diabetes management and making them available for people across the world. We enter into mutually beneficial partnerships that use the expertise and skills of each partner to create the most effective collaboration that can help people with diabetes.
Our Current Partnerships
Our technology and commercial partners help us to create more effective diabetes management solutions or get existing solutions into the hands of more people with diabetes. We are proud of the collaborations we have with these current partners.
Data Analysis Partnerships: allow diabetes data that has been collected by the Ascensia blood glucose meters to be used by partner software and apps. These partnerships simplify the lives of people with diabetes by providing the option for them to use their data with various software partners, in addition to our own CONTOUR®DIABETES app.
Insulin Delivery Partnerships: connect our blood glucose meters to insulin pumps or other diabetes management devices, so they can use the highly accurate readings for calibration of continuous glucose monitors or dosing of insulin. We want to be the partner of choice for any device in the diabetes market that needs highly accurate blood glucose readings.
CGM Partnerships: enable us to build a long-term world-class continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) franchise. Through partnerships with companies who have created cutting edge CGM solutions for the diabetes community, we can establish ourselves as a recognized player in this market and bring CGM products to more people with diabetes.
