The Company:

Each year, diabetes, obesity, and other cardiometabolic diseases cause the highest incidence of death, disability, and healthcare system costs. At Glooko, we make it simpler for people with these illnesses to connect with their physicians and care teams. Glooko is the universal platform for providing an FDA-cleared, HIPAA-compliant, EU MDR-certified Web and Mobile (iOS and Android) application for people with clinicians who treat them.

Glooko accelerates research and improves care by making it simpler for people to collect and share their health data with physicians and researchers. The platform seamlessly unifies and visualizes data from over 210 devices, including blood glucose meters, insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors, activity trackers, and biometric devices. Connecting to these devices allows Glooko to deliver insights that improve personal and clinical decision support. Patients and providers have one place to view their health management information, including medications, food intake, exercise, and biometrics. The platform makes it easier for physicians to monitor and deliver more personalized care remotely.

Glooko’s mobile app and web dashboard enable patients to track and proactively manage their diabetes care easily. Glooko’s Population Tracker and APIs offer diabetes-centric analytics and insightful reports that enable clinicians to identify at-risk patients. Clinicians can send pattern-triggered notifications to patients, health systems, and payers.

Our proprietary platforms enable clinical trial conduct and acceleration by leveraging advanced patient selection and site identification tools as well as remote device and e-PRO data collection capabilities. This platform's capabilities support the rapid development and iteration of digital companion and therapeutic applications.
