To connect OMRON BP monitors to the BeatO app, 60 per cent of BeatO’s 120,000 active users with diabetes have hypertension as well
BeatO, an app for chronic disease management, has tied up with OMRON Healthcare India, which makes digital BP monitors, to expand its footprint in the remote management of lifestyle-related chronic conditions associated with hypertension.
OMRON BP Monitors will now be connected to the BeatO aap ecosystem allowing users to gain real-time advice and more informed management on the steps to manage blood pressure control based on the patient’s readings and trends.
Supported with BeatO’s team of 25 specialist doctors and Health Coaches, the remote and virtual management on the BeatO App will enable seamless and real time support on nutrition, lifestyle and medicine adherence for patients based on their blood pressure readings and trends.
OMRON digital BP Monitors, fitted with patented technologies like IntelliSense, IntelliWrap and connectivity with smart phones, ensure accuracy and ease in communication which are the most important requisites for a device to be integrated in a remote patient monitoring system, especially in the new normal created by COVID.
This service will also be integrated into BeatO’s subscription plans that involve medicine deliveries, insurance and diagnostics making it an end-to-end solution similar to the existing service of BeatO to manage diabetes.
BeatO’s AI triaging system, HealthNeuronTM along with its Digital Care Ecosystem have reportedly helped diabetics manage their blood-sugar levels, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. BeatO already has 120,000 active users with diabetes on their platform, and 60 per cent of them have hypertension as well, according to a release.
Commenting on the partnership, Gautam Chopra, Co-founder and CEO, BeatO said “With this partnership, BeatO members will be able to monitor their blood pressure readings and receive personalised insights and real time support. Expanding the BeatO app ecosystem to hypertension allows us to now become a truly whole person platform and empower our members with more tools.”
Masanori Matsubara, MD, OMRON Healthcare India added, “The association will not only help in reducing the in-hospital risks of COVID spread but will also help in giving a push to the adoption of digital BP monitors amongst the masses. We have been making rapid strides in the field of remote monitoring and this is one more step ahead. Also, the partnership will surely help OMRON Healthcare in India to make progress towards its vision of ‘ZERO HEART ATTACKS and ZERO BRAIN STROKES’ by making people realise the importance of preventive healthcare management including timely and accurate blood pressure monitoring.”
