Business Need

Traditional diabetes treatments require patients to stick to a regime of medication and monitoring, demanding strict discipline and regular visits with doctors, costing time and money. Diabetacare helps both the discipline and the monitoring. For its devices to function they require real-time connectivity. This connectivity will allow data to be uploaded to a central server and for this data to be then securely accessed by multiple parties.

Solution

Using Vodafone’s Managed IoT Connectivity Platform, the Diabetacare solution monitors glucose and blood pressure levels, prompts medicines and automatically sends this data to specialist clinicians. Vodafone’s scale and coverage means the business needs just one supplier, fully managed from a single Global platform.

Business Benefits

  • Enables Diabetacare to launch world’s first remote diabetes monitoring solution, creating first-mover advantage.
  • Single Global SIM allows the business to plan for international ramp up from local pilot of 800 to 100,000 subscribers within three years.
  • Provides a real-time view of customer data usage, billing and SIM control from a single Global platform
