Glooko

Glooko is a cloud-based mobile system incorporating an app to allow for data from blood glucose meters, fitness monitors, and manual input to be evaluated in a single program. The system has been FDA 510(k) cleared and is HIPAA compliant, but is not yet available for purchase. Once marketed, the system will be available for patients, providers, payers, and caregivers to use in diabetes control. The cloud-based system, MeterSync Blue, connects compatible blood glucose meters to mobile devices. The Glooko system was designed to be compatible with over 30 different glucose and fitness monitors.

Some features of the app include:

  1. Compatible with Apple and Android products
  2. Remote monitoring of activity level, weight, blood pressure, glucose, etc.
  3. Food/ carbohydrate counting and exercise input
  4. Insulin and medication tracking
  5. Compatible with Accu-Check, Free-style, One-touch, and more

Patient Use: Gives patients with diabetes the ability to sync glucose tracking to a mobile device, add fitness tracker data, input food/carbohydrate intake and medication, and share reports of data with physicians.

Provider Use: Allows providers remote monitoring of patient’s disease state, medication compliance, glucose levels and lifestyle data in order to make interventions. This helps promote improved patient-provider communication.

Payer Use: Presents risk stratified diabetes data and analytics to target earlier treatment in members with diabetes control out of range.

Glooko and the MeterSync system allow for better access to patient disease state information, potentially improving disease state management and adherence. A pilot of this system was done at the Boston Joslin DM Center and showed improvements in diabetes management, specifically hypoglycemia. PHSI believes the integration of FDA approved devices such as Glooko will augment prescription medication usage and help support healthy activities leading to improved patient outcomes. Once marketed, Glooko can allow for better engagement of the healthcare team to improve diabetes control.
