INDIANAPOLIS — Roche Diabetes Care has integrated its Accu-Chek Connect System with the Apple Health app on iPhone.
Roche said Thursday that the integration enables diabetes patients using the Accu-Chek Connect app to share data with Apple’s HealthKit platform and view their blood glucose levels and carbohydrates in the Health app, along with other activity and health information.
“For people with diabetes, simplifying the management of their condition can be an essential part of championing their own health and wellness. We are excited to announce the integration of Accu-Chek Connect with the Apple Health app,” stated Marc Gibeley, head of Roche Diabetes Care North America. “This integration is the next step in helping those with diabetes adopt a holistic approach in managing their overall care by allowing them to log, view and share their diabetes data with other health tracking applications on their iPhone. It also provides health care teams with a better view of the patient’s lifestyle as they assess the role of health and fitness in their management routine.”
Other mobile apps that integrate with HealthKit, such as for electronic medical records (EMRs) or health and wellness trackers, can may also access this data, with user permission. For example, with the help of HealthKit, blood glucose data can now flow seamlessly from the Accu-Chek Aviva Connect meter to the Epic and Cerner EMR software, according to Roche.
