Roche Diabetes Care and ICW Announce Technology Partnership

InterComponentWare (ICW)Roche Diabetes Care, a global leader in diabetes care and eHealth specialist InterComponentWare (ICW) announced a multi-year, global partnership to develop a next-generation web-based solution for efficient diabetes management.

The structured evaluation and communication of blood glucose monitoring and insulin data is a pivotal part in efficient diabetes management. Until today, this poses a significant challenge for both people with diabetes and healthcare professionals. Developing a solution to ease the interaction between patients and healthcare providers will be the goal of the technology partnership Roche Diabetes Care and ICW have announced today.

Using the very successful Accu-Chek® 360° software and the powerful ICW eHealth Framework (eHF) as well as other solution components, Roche Diabetes Care and ICW will jointly develop a technology platform that will facilitate the secure sharing of data and communications between healthcare professionals and people with diabetes via the web and allow patients and caregivers to manage diabetes even more efficiently. Already today, the Accu-Chek 360° software allows for well-structured visualization and assessment of important blood glucose and insulin data and enables healthcare professionals, as well as people with diabetes, to determine appropriate therapy.

Burkhard G. Piper, President Roche Diabetes Care, notes, "We conducted a comprehensive search for a technology partner and we were pleased to select ICW. It is our goal to continuously improve the information exchange between patients and their caregivers. We aim to provide new solutions that can facilitate the exchange of health data that are key for successful therapeutic interventions. Combining our knowledge and expertise, we will be able to leverage web-based technologies and make significant advances in the areas of connectivity between patients and healthcare professionals."

"The agreement with Roche Diabetes Care represents a culmination of our development efforts to date," explains Peter Kirschbauer, CEO of ICW AG. "Roche Diabetes Care will leverage the ICW eHealth Framework and our successful deployment of the highest security standards for information exchange, as we co-develop new and advanced approaches to sharing relevant diabetes data. We are very pleased to have Roche Diabetes Care as our partner."
