The IDF Diabetes Atlas Eighth edition 2017 reveals that there were approximately 425 million adults between the ages of 20-79 living with diabetes worldwide. This number is expected to reach 629 million by 2045. To help clinicians detect the presence of diabetes in their patients and for patients who have diabetes to monitor their treatment, many companies have come up with solutions that leverage the power of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, cloud, IoT, and so on.
Devices containing AI algorithms have been developed which would be attached to the patients to supply insulin into their body as and when the body needs it. Additionally, new devices have come up in the market that would leverage the power of IoT and cloud to measure the insulin dosage of the patient and their blood sugar level and transmit this data to the clinician’s computer or mobile device in real-time. This could help them monitor the care regime of their patients better and reduces the number of hospital visits for the patients. All these ensure better care delivery while moving towards the healthcare’s shift to more cost-effective and patient-centric technologies.
The number of providers in the markets who develop diabetes care solutions has increased significantly. To help healthcare providers in their journey to provide effective diabetes care for their patients, a distinguished selection panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and the MedTech Outlook’s editorial board has selected a list of the top diabetes care solution providers. These companies leverage emerging technologies to come up with practical solutions in diabetic care.
