Ascensia Diabetes Care announced today that it has updated its Eversense Continuous Glucose Monitoring system app to integrate with Apple Health.
The Parsippany, NJ-based company makes the Contour Blood Glucose Monitoring (BGM) system and distributes Senseonics’ Eversense CGM system. The new Apple Health integration will allow people with diabetes using Senseonics’ Eversense CGM systems to view glucose data within the Apple Health app. In addition, they can also see other health metrics on the iPhone’s health and wellbeing platform.
Eversense CGM is a fully-implantable CGM with a sensor that has a 6-month sensor wear duration. The system transmits data to the Eversense CGM app. There, users can view, analyze and share glucose data. In addition, it alerts users to changes and trends in glucose levels as well.
The new integration allows users in all markets where Eversense is available to display their data in Apple Health, where they can also view health data from various apps and wearables.
“We are pleased to integrate the Eversense CGM system with Apple Health, giving our users more choice on how they view and use data for their diabetes management,” said Elaine Anderson, head of the Eversense CGM business unit at Ascensia Diabetes Care.
“Supplementing the benefits of the Eversense CGM App, this update allows people with diabetes to access glucose data alongside other important metrics to provide a more holistic view of their health and wellbeing. In an electronic world, it is important that medical devices and digital solutions are interoperable, and we are excited to further embed Eversense into the connected healthcare ecosystem.”
