ACTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) (Insulet), the global leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its Omnipod® Insulin Management System (Omnipod System), today announced its robust schedule of events for the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 80th Scientific Sessions: A Virtual Experience, June 12 – 16, 2020.
Omnipod® 5 Automated Glucose Control System, Powered by Horizon™ (Omnipod 5), formerly known as the Omnipod Horizon System, is the first tubeless smartphone-controlled automated insulin delivery system for people living with diabetes. The first outpatient data for Omnipod 5 for Type 1 Diabetes will be presented at ADA. In addition, Omnipod® System and Omnipod DASH® System data and clinical outcomes for Type 2 Diabetes will be presented, for a total of 10 oral and poster presentations at ADA. Omnipod 5 is expected to be commercially available in the U.S. in the first half of 2021.
Insulet’s booth will feature an array of offerings, including new practice resources to support an entirely virtual diabetes care experience from prescription through ongoing patient management with Omnipod. A combination of intuitively simple technology, electronic prescriptions through the pharmacy, and the ability to automatically access patient data remotely unlocks the power of the start-to-finish Omnipod Virtual Patient Care platform.
Insulet will also offer its 30 Days of Freedom program to ADA-registered healthcare providers for their U.S. patients to try Omnipod DASH at no cost. The program will be available to patients who are new to Omnipod through the July 4th Independence Day holiday. Individuals may visit a new dedicated web portal to initiate the virtual Omnipod onboarding process and healthcare providers can initiate training and ongoing care that is personalized to their patients’ needs in person or remotely. There have been thousands of successful Omnipod remote trainings globally. Insulet’s new Omnipod® Digest Magazine will debut at the Omnipod Virtual Care booth, as well, providing healthcare providers with tools to support onboarding and training new patients virtually.
“We are pleased to showcase how Omnipod simplifies life for those impacted by diabetes, by offering an entirely virtual experience from prescription through ongoing patient care,” said Bret Christensen, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. “We have achieved great success with our telemedicine capabilities during the current environment and we look forward to sharing how Omnipod Virtual Care can truly simply life for your practice and your patients.”
