TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DreaMed Diabetes Ltd., the developer of the personalized, AI- based diabetes management solution, announces a cooperation with Texas Children's Hospital by integrating its Advisor Pro software to help diabetes care in children and incorporate a simple remote treatment option.
Diabetes remains a serious concern in the United States, with more than 30 million Americans suffering from the disease－more than 1.2 million of whom suffer from type 1, driven by an estimated 40,000 new type 1 cases every year. In the state of Texas, the prevalence of diabetes increased by 40 percent over the last 11 years, prompting a greater need for improved and more accessible insulin treatment, especially in youth. More recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has relegated people with diabetes to staying isolated from the public sphere, due to their susceptibility to complications from infection, as reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Texas Children's Diabetes and Endocrine Care Center is one of the institutions leading the charge in the efforts to treat diabetes in the state, and doing so remotely.
Texas Children's Diabetes and Endocrine Care Center is a leader in research and treatment of children with diabetes. With over 3,000 diabetes cases evaluated annually, it is ranked as one of the nation’s best children’s hospitals by the U.S. News & World Report. In working with DreaMed, Texas Children's Hospital will assist in providing optimized, frequent care for children across the greater Houston area and beyond.
DreaMed’s Advisor Pro platform provides personalized optimization of insulin therapy management, driven by cloud-based technology utilizing artificial intelligence and algorithms for quick and efficient data analysis. The platform’s purpose is to assist medical professionals in the management of people with diabetes, providing personalized insulin dosage recommendations easily and efficiently for each and every patient. Recommendations are based on analysis of information derived from CGM, glucometers, insulin pumps, and the use of event-oriented data.
"DreaMed is proud to announce its collaboration with Texas Children's Diabetes and Endocrine Care Center, and play a pivotal role in supporting insulin therapy for children in the state of Texas," says Eran Atlas, Co-Founder and CEO of DreaMed Diabetes. "DreaMed Diabetes' mission is always to provide people with diabetes and health care professionals with a reliable, automated decision-support tool that empowers every patient with the best care possible."
