ACTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Insulet Corporation (NASDAQ: PODD) (Insulet or the Company), the global leader in tubeless insulin pump technology with its Omnipod brand of products, today announced an exciting lineup of events and product developments that will be discussed at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 83rd Scientific Sessions in San Diego, California, including new real-world evidence (RWE) of improved outcomes and optimization of care using the Omnipod 5 Automated Insulin Delivery System (Omnipod 5).
“Insulet’s flagship product, Omnipod 5, is having an incredible impact on people with diabetes, including improved glycemic outcomes and better quality of life,” said Jim Hollingshead, Insulet President and CEO. “We are thrilled with the opportunity to present real-world evidence from the first year on Omnipod 5 in the U.S., and further educate diabetes clinicians on how they can improve care for their patients using our tubeless automated insulin delivery technology.”
The Company also announced two updates related to Omnipod 5. In order to provide smartphone control for customers who use iOS mobile technology, Insulet has submitted the Omnipod 5 App for iPhone to the FDA for 510(k) clearance. The user interface has been enhanced to align with the iOS operating system, and a new Custom Food feature has been added to the Omnipod 5 App for iPhone.
Additionally, progressing with the Company's goal to provide Omnipod 5 users with sensor of choice, Insulet will soon begin enrollment for the clinical study of Omnipod 5 with the integration of the Abbott FreeStyle Libre 2 sensor. The study will recruit up to 200 participants with type 1 diabetes in both the adult and pediatric age groups in the United Kingdom, France, and Belgium. The study is intended to demonstrate superior efficacy with Omnipod 5 compared to multiple daily injections, as measured by glycated hemoglobin.
Insulet representatives will discuss these plans for Omnipod 5 future innovations at ADA.
The Company will kick off ADA with a live presentation on Friday, June 23 at 3:15 p.m. PT with Dr. Rayhan Lal, Assistant Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics, Divisions of Endocrinology, Stanford University presenting “Real-World Glycemic Outcomes of 36,634 Adults with Type 1 Diabetes Using the Omnipod 5 Automated Insulin Delivery (AID) System with Cloud-Based Data Management.”
Additionally, Insulet will share poster presentations with real-world evidence, including a poster demonstrating improved outcomes for children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes using the Omnipod 5 System. These events will build upon Insulet’s first release of Omnipod 5 RWE presented at the Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) in Berlin, Germany earlier this year, with evidence from over 55,000 individuals across all age groups to be shared at ADA.
Other poster presentations will convey data related to glycemic and quality of life benefits with the Omnipod DASH® System with a total of seven presentations at ADA (a full schedule is included below).
Product Theater: One Year of Omnipod 5: Real World Learnings for Optimized Care
Attendees are invited to attend a Product Theater on Sunday, June 25 at 10:15 a.m. PT where Insulet will reflect on the impact Omnipod 5 has had on patients and practices over one year since it was released and lead a discussion on patient selection for AID.
This program will be led by Dr. Trang Ly, Insulet Senior Vice President and Medical Director. Dr. Ly will be joined by Dr. Anne Peters, Professor of Clinical Medicine, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California and Dr. Jennifer Sherr, Professor of Pediatrics, Pediatric Endocrinology, Yale University School of Medicine.
“It is critical to understand how this technology is being used by adult populations across all demographics in the real world,” said Dr. Peters, who will relay strategies for utilizing this RWE data to improve care in diverse populations. “I’ve seen first-hand how Omnipod 5 is having a positive impact on diverse populations in the U.S. and translating key learnings into strategies for care will have a lasting effect on patients and clinicians worldwide.”
