Doro and MyGlucoHealth will provide a mobile solution to improve the management of diabetes. MyGlucoHealth’s testing device will integrate with some of Doro’s easy mobiles. The solution will simplify the uploading of data from blood tests via SMS into a secure portal – this will improve remote monitoring. The portal provides feedback and advice to the user to help better manage their diabetes.
Doro and Finnish company Medixine will deliver a one-touch medication reminder service via Doro’s easy-to-use mobiles. Doro EasyMed Reminder is an integrated service enabling users to better manage prescription medications and improve compliance of prescription drugs. The service provides a one key automated SMS mechanism to register that a medicine has been taken. The system holds prescription details and uses reminders to ensure drugs are taken correctly.
One third of people aged +65yrs, frequently forget to take prescribed medicines, conditions as dementia can exacerbate the situation. If seniors are able to better manage their medicines they may be able to remain in their own homes longer – reducing the financial impact of an aged society.
