Roche Launches Innovative Accu-Chek Guide Blood Glucose Monitoring System
The Accu-Chek Guide system enables on-board pattern detection that helps to increase awareness of too high or too low glucose readings as well as Bluetooth Low Energy connectivity to the Accu-Chek Connect diabetes management solution via a mobile app. This cloud-based solution guarantees a secure online data exchange and automatic data logging. People with diabetes, caregivers, and healthcare providers can share diabetes information virtually anywhere for timely advice and remote monitoring. Such telemedicine solutions can help people with diabetes and their caregivers manage diabetes more efficiently and give them peace of mind and a feeling of relief. Hence, 97% of 197 participants in a recently published study from France and the US agreed that the system was very easy to use and offers a better testing experience1.
The Accu-Chek Guide system not only fulfills current accuracy standards2 but delivers even tighter 10/10 accuracy for more reliable results3. Consistently accurate measurements are essential for reliable BG monitoring and deriving the correct therapy decisions4,5. Large deviations of the measured BG values from the true glucose levels can result in higher HbA1c levels, glycemic excursions and markedly increased rates of hypoglycemic events, as a recently published retrospective study revealed6. In addition, studies have demonstrated that only about half of the BG meters evaluated meet the minimum accuracy requirements as defined by the ISO 15197:2013/EN ISO 15197:2015 standard7,8.
