Now in its final stage of development, the cognitive app being developed by Medtronic and IBM Watson Health was revealed at the American Diabetes Association’s 76th Scientific Sessions this week. Called SugarWise, the app is designed to reveal a diabetic’s patterns and trends related insulin levels, continuous glucose monitoring and nutritional data to help users make the connection between their behavior and their glucose levels, all in real time. According to an IBM release, the companies also released results from a hypoglycemia prediction data study of 10,000 patients that showed preliminary prediction accuracy of 75-86% within a two-to-four-hour window.
MedTech Intelligence reported on the app concept when it was announced by Medtronic and IBM at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
