This is a great example of two North Carolina-based companies working together to lower healthcare costs for diabetes patients
Charlotte, NC (Vocus) September 5, 2009
Diagnostic Devices, Inc. (DDI), the maker of Prodigy® blood glucose monitoring systems and the leading provider of audible diabetes testing meters has announced an agreement with Harris Teeter putting the Prodigy AutoCode® meters into its pharmacies.
"This is a great example of two North Carolina-based companies working together to lower healthcare costs for diabetes patients," said Rick Admani Abulhaj, chief operating officer of DDI and the Prodigy® line.
The Prodigy AutoCode® has audible capabilities meaning patients can have their meter "tell" them their results in either English or Spanish. The talking feature can be turned off if so desired.
And the Prodigy AutoCode® is easy to use, requiring no coding, providing test results in only seven seconds while being clinically proven to exceed FDA accuracy standards.
Harris Teeter, Inc., headquartered in Matthews, NC, has stores in eight states and the District of Columbia.
