Aug 13, 2020
NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DarioHealth Corp. (Nasdaq: DRIO), a pioneer in the global digital therapeutics market, today announced that an emerging science industry poster has been accepted for presentation at the virtual Association of Diabetes Care and Education Specialists (ADCES) 2020 Annual Conference, which is being held today, August 13, through August 16, 2020.
The poster, entitled, "Impact of Digital Management on Clinical Outcome in Patients with Chronic Conditions: Diabetes and Hypertension," details results from an observational study of 345 participants with hypertensive blood pressure at baseline who utilized the Dario digital therapeutics platform.
- All study subjects started with hypertension stage 1, stage 2 or hypertensive crisis levels.
- They were monitored using the Dario blood pressure monitoring system for three months.
- 70% of users (243/345) improved their blood pressure reading by 8.4 mmHg Systolic and 6.2 mmHg Diastolic on average (Systolic 134.2 ± 12 versus 142.6 ±14; Diastolic 83.7 ± 8.7 versus 89.9 ± 11).
- The same group of 345 users measured their glucose levels with the Dario digital therapeutics platform for a period of six months or longer. 89% of study participants reported a confirmed diagnosis of prediabetes or Type 2 diabetes.
- A reduction of 33% (5.4% versus 8.0%) in high readings (>250 mg/dL) and 67% (0.3% versus 0.9%) in severe events (>400 mg/dL) was observed at six months as compared to baseline.
- A subset of 114 study subjects with elevated baseline blood glucose (>160 mg/dL) improved their average blood glucose by 14% (177 ±50 versus 207 ± 47 mg/dL) as compared to baseline.
Notably, the average age of participants in this study was 60.4 years, suggesting that the required use of technology by older individuals does not appear to be a significant barrier to engagement.
The paper concludes, "This observational study of a digital therapeutic platform for chronic disease demonstrates improved blood pressure at three months and glycemic control at six months compared to baseline. These findings suggest that digital therapeutics may help sustain behavioral change and play an important role in the management of diabetes and hypertension."
Erez Raphael, Chief Executive Officer of Dario, stated, "We are excited about these positive results observed across hundreds of patients. We believe that this latest study adds to our growing body of clinical evidence, supporting the use of Dario's platform to produce meaningful health improvements in patients who are trying to better manage their chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes. We believe that this information is not only helpful to the physicians who recommend use of our platform, but also to institutions like payers and self-insured employers who benefit from healthier members and employees in the form of reduced medical expenses. This value proposition is an important tool for attracting new clients in our Business-to-Business-to-Consumer (B2B2C) channel."
