Even with a pump, the effective management of diabetes requires accurate, comprehensive information.
Clinicians need to know as much as possible about blood sugar levels, diet, exercise and insulin doses. Yet even when these data are meticulously collected and recorded, their value becomes limited by the inevitable delay between visits to the clinic or periodic manual uploads.
The data doesn't just need to be comprehensive and accurate, it needs to be current. With a traditional approach to diabetes, management, problems can go unaddressed for weeks. In contrast, Cellnovo enables comprehensive information to be collected and shared in real time with the healthcare team using mobile technology and a secure web interface. Clinicians and family members are instantly alerted to possible problems. A phone call or text from the clinic might quickly remedy a problem spotted online, or can be used to arrange a visit to help patients work through challenges that might otherwise impair their control. The incorporation of mobile connectivity represents a revolution for insulin pump technology and a revolution in the ease of life of diabetes patients.
