SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Tandem Diabetes Care®, Inc. (NASDAQ: TNDM), a medical device
company and manufacturer of the only touchscreen insulin pumps available
in the United States, today announced the launch of the t:connect®
HCP Portal. The portal is an extension of the company's Mac- and
PC-compatible, cloud-based t:connect Diabetes Management Application,
rated #1 by insulin pump users in independent patient surveys.1
The original t:connect Application was designed with significant input
from patients, placing the ability to monitor diabetes goals between
clinic visits within their control. The simple, accessible reporting
empowers and encourages patients to take an active role in their care.
As a result, a significant number of Tandem pump users upload and view
their data in the t:connect Application.2 More than half of
Tandem pump users have logged into the t:connect Application in the past
90 days and upload three times per month on average.
The t:connect HCP Portal was developed based on information and feedback
collected from hundreds of physicians, nurses, diabetes educators and
office staff across the United States to streamline their use of the
original t:connect Application and improve office efficiency. Healthcare
providers can now upload data from a Tandem pump and blood glucose meter
simultaneously, find patients quickly by either first or last name, set
patient-specific ranges to quickly identify data that falls outside of
goals, and more easily view, save and print reports. The t:connect
Application is also cloud based, allowing access to previously uploaded
patient data from any internet-connected computer in the U.S.
If you are a healthcare provider and would like to learn more about
the t:connect HCP Portal, please talk to your local Tandem
Representative or contact Customer Technical Support at (877) 801-6901.
