Mendor, a leading diabetes technology and solution company, is happy to announce a contract with city of Tampere to provide Mendor ONE mobile health diabetes management solution for people with type 1 diabetes at Tampere diabetes outpatient clinic. Mendor ONE comprises a cellular enabled blood glucose meter, cloud software to be used at the clinic and a smartphone application for people with diabetes. Direct home delivery of all glucose monitoring consumables is included.  

“Mendor ONE enables real-time and remote monitoring on self-measured blood glucose without a need to separately record or share the values”, says Susanna Aspholm, Head of the diabetes outpatient clinic. 

“The service helps people with diabetes to maintain glycemic control and motivates self-care while allowing us to focus on patients needing our support”,Clinic’s Endocrinologist Päivi Hannula adds. 

Mika Vuori, Planning manager at City of Tampere expects Mendor ONE to bring cost savings, as the need for primary care visits is being reduced. 

A health economic study will be conducted together with Aalto University HEMA Institute to validate the expected outcomes. Patient recruitment will start during Q1/2015. 

Mendor CEO & Co-Founder, Kristian Ranta adds: “I'm very excited about this collaboration with City of Tampere in Finland. It is truly a landmark solution and implementation in digital diabetes management for patients, providers and payers. This collaboration has the potential to solve some of the most pressing challenges in diabetes care today. I'm also thankful to our team here at Mendor for making this happen, and to the innovative people at City of Tampere for seeing the opportunity and sharing the vision with us, in being part of revolutionizing diabetes care in the future.” 

Mendor is a fast growing diabetes technology company, committed to the design, development and commercialization of next generation diabetes management products and solutions. Mendor’s vision is a future where diabetes care is integrated, individual and outcome driven.
