ALRT Launches Prediabetes Solution Completing Most Comprehensive Diabetes Management System Available Today
New Feature Will Expand the Scope of the ALRT Diabetes Solution to Help Prevent Diabetes
RICHMOND, Va., July 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALR Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: ALRT) is launching the ALRT Prediabetes Solution. This is a new, prevention-based feature of the ALRT Diabetes
Solution that is already well-positioned in the diabetes patient care marketplace. The new product was designed in direct response to discussions with government healthcare authorities for a
scalable solution that could address the growing problem of prediabetes.
ALRT is making its new Prediabetes Solution available at no cost to health plans that are using the ALRT Diabetes Solution for their current beneficiaries who have diabetes. This will help payer groups manage the diabetes pandemic at its most treatable stage.
The newest features expand the scope of the ALRT Diabetes Solution, further cementing it as the most comprehensive diabetes management platform available on the market today. The Prediabetes Solution provides patients with educational videos and supplemental content formatted for mobile devices and a private online community to discuss disease management (e.g., support, weight loss, diet, etc.). Most importantly, the System tracks patients and reminds them to test their A1C according to payer protocols. This is the best way to ensure that patients get therapy as soon as they cross the threshold to overt diabetes. Effectively, the ALRT Prediabetes Solution gives patients access to all the products in the ALRT Diabetes Solution, less the blood glucose testing supplies and weekly reviews by the healthcare team.
“In our discussions with government healthcare authorities, we became acutely aware of their desire for turnkey technology that addresses both diabetes and prediabetes,” commented Sidney Chan, CEO of ALR Technologies. “Ultimately, most people with prediabetes will transition into diabetes, which is when costs start skyrocketing and quality of life diminishes. Our goal is to provide solutions that can delay, or even prevent, the onset of full-on disease, while getting patients and healthcare providers into the ALRT Diabetes Solution framework.”
The ALRT Prediabetes system will give patients the tools that they need to be proactive in monitoring their A1C. As with any disease, early detection is critical to controlling outcomes. As soon as a patient’s A1C exceeds the diagnostic threshold for diabetes, the healthcare provider can immediately prescribe the ALRT Diabetes Solution to closely monitor and guide the patient’s clinical progress.
