Vodafone’s M2M tech makes diabetes care easy

|July 27, 2015 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Vodafone Business Services (VBS), the enterprise arm of Vodafone India, has collaborated with Diabetacare to launch dCare Smart, a device that helps people manage diabetes better.

Diabetes is fast gaining the status of a potential epidemic in India with more than 62 million diabetic individuals currently diagnosed with the disease.

dCare Smart, is a GSM SIM enabled wireless glucometer that empowers people to proactively monitor their blood sugar levels which is powered by Vodafone’s Machine to Machine (M2M) embedded cellular technology.

The device transmits blood sugar results to a secure Diabetacare server, where they are constantly monitored by Diabetes Specialist Clinicians at the Diabetacare’s Diabetes Management Centre (DMC). In case of any abnormal blood glucose readings, both the patient and kin receive an alert/call with expert advice from the DMC immediately.

Nick Gliddon, Director – Vodafone Business Services says, “This Diabetacare deployment is a reflection of our strong, successful and differentiated approach to M2M in India. There is a huge opportunity in this country and we have the capability to maintain over 10 billion SIMs in our platform. We are confident of growing this business further, especially in segments like healthcare.” 

Dr. Sanjiv Agarwal, Founder & Managing Director, Diabetacare said, “Vodafone’s global M2M solutions will help Diabetacare fulfil its plans to ramp up deployments to 100,000 users across multiple locations. Vodafone’s scale and global coverage means the business needs just one supplier, fully managed from a single platform.”
