9am.health and Ascensia partner on blood glucose meter for diabetes toolkit

The addition of blood glucose meters will complement lab tests, diabetes medications and telemedicine visits.

Virtual diabetes clinic 9am.health has partnered with Ascensia Diabetes Care to add the Contour Next One blood glucose meter to its patient diabetes toolkit.

As part of the collaboration, the clinic’s type 2 diabetes and prediabetes patients can now add Ascensia’s blood glucose meter and 100 to 300 test strips to their personalised treatment plan.

The addition of blood glucose meters will enable regular blood sugar check-ups at home.

This will complement lab tests, diabetes medications, telemedicine visits and all-in-one virtual diabetes care offerings.

The blood glucose meter will be offered for free on all patient care plans, while the test strip addition will be available to patients through a monthly or quarterly subscription added to their existing care plan.

9am.health noted that patients will also be able to further supplement their plan with a one-time order of a lancing device and lancets.

9am.health co-founder and co-CEO Frank Westermann said: “The availability of blood glucose meters has been repeatedly requested by our customers from the very beginning, and we are proud to have partnered with Ascensia to provide their exceptional Contour Next One meter.”

The company stated that regular blood glucose self-monitoring can help manage diabetes and prevent complications.

Ascensia Diabetes Care blood glucose meter marketing and strategy head Frank Held said: “We are excited to team up with 9am.health to bring the benefits of our products to more people with diabetes.

“Our remarkably accurate Contour Next One glucose meter is a great addition to their virtual diabetes clinic.

“We look forward to working together to help make it as simple and affordable as possible for people to manage their diabetes.”
