Bringing the benefits of digital health to the care of elderly persons with diabetes
Diabetes is a global health burden which causes significant economic and human costs due to its serious complications (amputations, loss of eye sight, kidney failure). The risk of complications is, however, much lower if diabetes is well managed.
With millions of patients in Europe alone, elderly persons with diabetes are a large and fast-growing group, but due to their lack of IT skills, digital health solutions have to be very easy to use in order to gain wide acceptance.
Glucostratus offers a digital service that replaces today’s paper blood glucose logbooks and enables elderly diabetes patients to share their readings with doctors and nurses from home without any IT skills. The service improves the quality as well as the productivity of diabetes care.
We want to bring the benefits of digital health to the care of elderly persons with diabetes and build a major international Software-as-a-Service business. Our solution already has customers in Finland, and it has been used in a clinical study funded by Sanofi, one of the global diabetes pharma companies.
We are now looking for investors to join us to speed up our sales growth.
