Glooko and Diasend have merged into a unified company.
Glooko and Diasend offers diabetes management and analytics platforms that facilitate data driven care for patients and clinicians.
“This is a big day for us – we are thrilled to come together to be able to deliver products and services that will offer even more value to patients and healthcare providers around the world,” says Rick Altinger, CEO of Glooko, Inc.
“This is without a doubt the best possible scenario for our two companies, as well as for patients and the care teams that serve them. From our standpoint, this means adding even more functionality to an already very strong technical platform,” says Anders Sonesson, CEO of Diasend AB.
As a combined entity, the new company now serves 4,000 diabetes clinics in 23 countries across 15 languages, impacting tens of millions of people with diabetes. The joint platform downloads data from more than 160 different devices – including glucose meters, insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) and activity trackers, in total covering over 95% of diabetes devices used worldwide. Together the joint solution enables support for people with diabetes during and in-between doctor visits, as well as in-office diabetes data uploads and analytics. The products also provide smartphone enabled self-management and a population health platform that supports diabetes coaches around the world.
The two companies, which have chosen to unite under the Glooko name, have recently raised $8M in equity financing, led by global venture capital firm Canaan Partners, to accelerate integration and sales efforts. Other investors include Social Capital, Samsung Ventures and Yogen Dalal, Glooko’s founder and partner emeritus at venture capital firm Mayfield fund.
Glooko’s recently announced Glooko Advise product line is focused on leveraging diabetes data to deliver personalized medicine recommendations to patients and care teams. Diasend’s recent announcement focused on enabling Abbott’s Freestyle LibreLink patients to see their glucose data alongside pump data. As a combined entity, these and other product delivery initiatives will not only continue, but will also be optimized and accelerated through the larger combined team.
