“I am convinced that the HealthVision Diabetic Management System will have a big impact in diabetes management and the lifestyle of diabetes patients," said Dr. Crispin Semakula
Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) April 22, 2011
This week HealthVision Solutions, LLC released its patent-pending HVS Diabetic Management System, a new smart phone application and database search engine that helps diabetics make critical calculations when managing their blood sugar & insulin levels.
Up until now the world's 250 million people with diabetes have calculated blood sugar levels & insulin levels by counting carbohydrates and other foods, usually in their heads. This method usually involves estimates and guesswork that frequently leads to unhealthy results.
HealthVision Solutions saw the current proliferation of mobile phone apps as a breakthrough opportunity for innovative technology to help fight and treat diabetes. HVS Diabetic Management System runs on a smart phone with an Android operating system and does real-time calculations of Personal Blood Sugar Range, Personal Correction Factor, Insulin-to-Carb Ratio, and the amount of carbohydrates the user is consuming at any time.
Bob Wieden, CEO of HealthVision Solutions states, "This takes the guesswork out of calculating blood glucose levels, insulin levels, and carbohydrate consumption. Our new app is a huge step forward for the world's hundreds of millions of diabetics who have suffered under the old system for decades," Wieden added, "It can even be used by Type-2 diabetics as a means to keep their diet in check and helps people with insulin pumps to regulate their insulin dosages better."
In the past diabetics sometimes made mistakes with their insulin levels and would wind up in doctor's offices, hospitals, and clinics. The HVS Diabetic Management System is projected to save healthcare facilities an average of 1/2 hour per day per nurse, and that will provide a huge savings to the healthcare organization, and superior diabetic patient care when they are admitted to a health facility.
“I am convinced that the HealthVision Diabetic Management System will have a big impact in diabetes management and the lifestyle of diabetes patients," said Dr. Crispin Semakula, an Endocrinologist at the Diabetes Clinic at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. He added, “The Reporting Engine allows me to monitor my patient’s diet, carb consumption, blood glucose, and insulin use at any given time - that provides a window into their daily life and allows me to tailor my care to address problematic patterns.”
"Our system will also save users a tremendous amount of productivity loss at work and reduce the time periods of not feeling well. The global consequences of 250 million people now enjoying healthier lives make HVS Diabetic Management System a major step forward…for patients and their health practitioners," Wieden said.
HVS Diabetic Management System counts calories, fat, carbs, and diabetic carb count accurately and at lightening speed. Instead of guessing or making rough estimates, diabetics know precisely their insulin levels at all times.
