Voluntis is contributing its FDA-cleared app, Insulia, to the alliance. The service enables clinicians to set up personalized treatment plans for their patients. Clinicians base the plan on their patient’s profile, insulin prescription and blood glucose targets. Based on this information and blood sugar readings, Insulia provides insulin dose recommendations and coaching messages to users, either via an iOS or Android app or a web portal.”
