People living with diabetes require constant vigilance in making the right lifestyle choices and remembering to take their medications. Health2Sync bridges the lengthy gap between doctor visits by enabling frequent digital touch points between patients and healthcare providers. Through its behavioral AI engine, the App can provide hints and nudges concerning meals, exercise, and blood glucose management, delivered in a compelling and friendly way that encourages users to stay adherent to their treatment plans.
"At Novo Nordisk we are guided by our patient-centred business approach," said John Dawber, Vice President and Head of Marketing Division, Novo Nordisk Pharma Ltd. (at the time of the partnering). "When we met the team from Health2Sync, it was clear that we have a shared mission in improving outcomes for people with diabetes. With this partnership, combining the passion and commitment of both organizations, we believe we will demonstrate shared value for the patient, the physician, and the Japanese Healthcare provider."
"We are excited to be partnering with Novo Nordisk in Japan, where the market is receptive to innovation at improving treatment process and patient experiences," said Ed Deng, Co-Founder and CEO of Health2Sync.
