Launch of user trials and first public demonstration at Innovfest 2018 signify the start of the next phase for SugoSure as the product moves steadily towards commercialisation.
ConnectedHealth Pte Ltd’s first chronic disease management product, SugoSure, is progressing steadily towards commercial launch by the end of this year. SugoSure is a digital health solution focused on improving the care of patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
In recent months, SugoSure has undergone extensive development, progressing from prototype into a fully functioning Patient App and Physician Portal, linked through our cloud-based clinical data management platform.
The third component of Sugosure, the Health Coach Portal, is on track to be completed in 3q 2018. This will create a linked platform which allows doctors and other clinicians to monitor patient care and intervene more effectively than ever before. At the same time SugoSure’s app and personalised health coaching support patients as they make the lifestyle changes needed to achieve best possible disease outcomes.
From 11 June the ConnectedHealth team will test functionality and usability of the SugoSure Patient App and Physician Portal with Dr Tan Chee Eng (Clinical Advisor to ConnectedHealth) and his patients from his practice at Gleneagles Hospital. The trial will run for 6 weeks with patients of varying ages, lifestyles and co-morbidities using the system, overseen by Dr Tan who will use the Physician Portal to remotely review patient progress and manage care plans.
This is the first in a line of trials planned by ConnectedHealth to gather feedback which will be incorporated into the SugoSure’s final pre-launch stages of development and design. Discussions are also under way with two major Singapore hospitals with a view to setting up larger, full-scale trials to demonstrate clinical efficacy later this year.
ConnectedHealth will publicly demonstrate SugoSure for the first time at Innovfest 2018 to potential partners and investors. Visitors are welcome at the ConnectedHealth booth in Pavilion O, Marina Bay Sands Expo & Conference Centre Singapore.
