ALR Technologies Partners with Singapore General Hospital to Conduct a Clinical Pilot
ALRT will demonstrate proof of its remote diabetes patient management concept in partnership with Singapore General Hospital
(February 11, 2020 -- RICHMOND, VA) ALR Technologies, Inc. (“ALRT”) (OTCPINK: ALRT), the diabetes management company, has signed an agreement with Singapore General Hospital (“SGH”) to jointly undertake a novel remote diabetes management pilot to prove the efficacy of the ALRT Diabetes Solution in insulin-treated diabetes patients. Singapore has the second-highest proportion of diabetics among developed nations according to the International Diabetes Federation.
SGH will recruit 25 type 2 diabetes (“T2D”) patients who use premixed insulin and whose baseline A1C values are greater than 8% for the pilot called GlucosE Monitoring and InterventioN in Insulin-treated T2D patients (GEMINIT2D). The patients’ blood glucose data will be analyzed during the 24-week treatment period using the ALRT Diabetes Solution remote patient management platform. The study will determine the usefulness and feasibility of using ALRT diabetes management technology in managing T2D patients treated with premixed insulin. The primary outcome measure will be A1C reduction. Secondary outcome measures will include patient adherence to blood glucose testing regimens and frequency of hypoglycemic episodes.
SGH, an academic medical centre of SingHealth Duke-NUS, has been ranked the third best hospital in the world by Newsweek https://www.newsweek.com/best-hospitals-2019 after the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic. The pilot will be conducted by its Department of Endocrinology at SGH and the SingHealth Duke-NUS Diabetes Centre.
The ALRT Diabetes Solution is an FDA-cleared, HIPAA-compliant, remote diabetes patient management system that leverages blood glucose data patterns to improve diabetes outcomes. The system includes patent pending Predictive A1C and FDA cleared insulin dose adjustment features to assist healthcare providers in managing diabetes patients who use insulin therapy.
