Dexcom contacted the Kore healthcare team to seek assistance on a quick turnaround of delivering a remote patient monitoring solution, the Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitoring system, to support healthcare professionals during the social distancing times demanded by COVID-19. The Dexom G6 facilitates healthcare workers to reduce both the use of personal protective equipment and the number of in-person glucose level checks on patients who are receiving care for COVID-19 in hospital as it measures glucose levels automatically every five minutes and transmits the data to a handheld mobile device. The blood glucose levels can then be safely and accurately monitored by the relevant staff remotely.
President & CEO of Kore, Romil Bahl, said: “We are in an unprecedented situation and the Kore team is looking for ways to help. When the Dexcom team approached us to help in short timeframes, our healthcare team was up to the challenge. We are honoured that our knowledge and experience in connectivity and device procurement, certification, and deployment is playing a role in this innovative solution and that we are able to help in the global war against COVID-19. Our greatest thanks to both Dexcom and our front-line warriors as they take on this invisible enemy.”
“We are honoured that our knowledge and experience in connectivity and device procurement, certification, and deployment is playing a role in this innovative solution“
Executive vice president of IoT managed services, Bryan Lubel, said: “Kore Health was able to procure fully certified and ISO-compliant devices, complete engineering testing and approval, identify connectivity solutions and deploy the first wave of equipped devices in just over a week – ensuring rapid speed-to-market for this critical solution.”
